This afternoon I had a lesion cut out of my left temple. It was Basal-cell Carcinoma (BCC), the commonest form of skin cancer. Apparently 3 out of 10 Caucasians get it, usually on the face or neck where the sun starts it off. It's not life-threatening or anything, but best get rid of it. I had one excised before, a bit higher. On stitching it up, the surgeon said I looked like Harry Potter, before covering it with plasters. Doesn't hurt. The only embarrassing thing will be all the "What happened to your head?" questions in the office tomorrow.
