Skin cancer

Rays latest escapade with skin cancer reminds us all of the dangers

It doesnít even need sunbathing

We have been so lucky, itís been four years since his last metastasis of melonoma

This was a metastasis the size of a pea under the skin

The wounds are the margins clearance

As summer approaches take care and take no chances, the sun is not necessarily your friend

On Monday he goes to see his surgeon who calls him his warrior

He has oedema in that arm but he has never let it define him

His handshake is as strong as anyoneís, he uses it as normal and always has done, regardless of pain

And thatís only one of the many ops on that poor arm

You can see on the photo his third tit as his grandkids have christened it

The result of the total removal of his lymph glands which filled with fluid which had to be drained several times

The centre mole is placed as a nipple and gives the grandkids much amusement

But the message remains take care and get that mole checked, we didnít, and it should have been too late by the time they checked it

It was deep and 3rd stage

But so far it has remained in his arm

And christies has been fantastic

But even so the heartache has been so great

So please take care

Sandra

Yes Sandra. My wife was the sun worshiper and used to baste for 8 hours a day when on holiday. I rarely laid out in the sun and mainly spent time in the bar or playing with some project or another. Rarely had shorts on and I get the melanoma on the ankle and now this 'tumour' on the nose. But both caught early and virtually instant treatment.

Looking better today and this was an almost a pin head spot on the very end of my nose.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Thanks Nick, Mandy and Sandra. Any time unless we make Portugal. But nothing is certain now.

I'm wondering Ray why they had to cut such a big flap - did they have to remove tissue all the way up from the end of your nose?

Tell me not to be so nosey if you like!

Iím guessing itís to ensure that all cancerous tissue is removed and a safety margin around it to prevent

reoccurrence Jean
