Exclamation Msg. for poreoily...

Hi Poreoily

I wanted to ask you about your results with the biopsy. Did you have a lot of the bumps? Also, when they took it out, was it gone for good, and did it look better?

Did you have to have all of them removed?

They just said they were normal skin growths? If you didn't get them all taken off, how did they go away?

Sorry for all of the questions, but I really would like to hear from you, b/c I don't know anyone who's had this same problem.

I just had two, but they had been there for years. They were just a normal buildup of cells, but to me they looked like permanent zits. I had "holes" afterward too, but they healed fine and you can't tell they used to be there. Just keep rubbing Neosporin on them several times a day.

Sorry I can't tell you more, but that's about it. They didn't come back.

I would think that either your regular doctor (my family physician did mine) or a dermatologist could freeze yours off since now you know they are benign. Insurance covered mine too. Seems to me it should be covered just like removing warts, which is also just a matter of freezing them off.

Well, that's encouraging! I hope the same thing happens with me..so I can get rid of all of them.

I have more than two--I have about ten on my chin, and some around each side of my nose.They've been there for years.
