I got 4 of them taken out earlier this year and will be doing regular checkups.Yes.
This is probably the main thing I want to leave for everyone:
I got melanoma, skin cancer, from TOO LITTLE SUN, not too much. I had a mole on my upper left thigh, and a MASSIVE Vitamine D deficiency (it basically rounded down to zero when they tested me).
If you have ANY moles that change shape, change colour, or just don't look right, get them tested IMMEDIATELY. Also get a skin check once a year, it only takes 15 minutes and there are cancer clinics that'll do it free (in Australia anyway).
I was VERY lucky (in a way), wife is nurse, noticed it changed. If i'd waited a few more weeks, it would've passed my sentinal (?) nodes and i'd already be dead. They caught early BUT a year later it popped up elsewhere. It gave me an extra few years by noticing earlier.
Nodular melanoma, spread from a mole to my lymphatic system. Have had 5 surgeries + multiple other treatments over last year.
this weekend I think I'm going to try making him butter cream mints using cannabutter
read the princess bride, movie is great of course, but so much of the humor from the book couldn't be carried over into film, it's really really funny (though the very beginning about how he gets the book can be dry)
Mad respect. This thread makes me want to get checked out. This scenario goes through my head every now and then and I don't think I would be as positive as you. I always come to the decision of selling a few things and just buying a used Lamborghini or a big ass truck and just driving. No idea where I would go but that is what I come up with.
Something like what this guy did
Sorry to hear brotha
Very inspirational bro! I really wish you the best of luck and hope you get better!
If you ever make it to Germany (Bavaria) and im around hit me up you can have all the German beer your weee heart desires and your liver can handle on me!
My mom had melanoma from a mole on her leg. Luckily, they removed the mole and a chunk out of her calve and that removed the cancer. She was very lucky, I wish nothing but the best to you dude, you've got a great attitude.
Thread is making me want to go get the mole on my shoulder that always gets burnt checked out/removed.
I can has?
DO IT. now. no seriously, right now. i'll wait.........
Thanks, have noted this down to re-read tomorrow when I can read properly (Will read this entire thread tomorrow just to rub in to myself what a stupid thing it was to do )
Will do. Have heard about it but never read it or watched the movie. Have added it to my list
Just got back from the funeral for one of my oldest friends who had a type of thyroid cancer. He fought tooth and nail for a year but also had a great outlook on life like you. I never got the chance to tell him, so I'll tell you. You sir are an absolute badass.
