First post. First Skin Screening tonight.
Hello All. Just wanted to introduce myself: My name is Jenn, 39yo, and I'm going to my first skin cancer screening tonight. Last week I noticed a change to a freckle on my thigh. Started off flat and now it is slightly raised, scaly, and a little dry. I was extremely foolish about the sun up until a few months ago. I went to the tanning salon every Summer for about 6 years and was never really diligent about Sunscreen despite my fair skin. Call me a fool because it is precisely what I was. Now I am a woman, counting the minutes and seconds, sobbing quietly so that my co-workers don't hear me, until my 7pm appointment. I've been coming onto this message board for the past few days and the warmth, hope, truth, and caring in many of your messages is what brought me to register. Thank you to you all. God Bless.
