Unpleasant News

Back in May, I believe, I was feeling very lightheaded and dizzy at work, so I drove to the emergency room. I seemed to get a clean bill of health, but one of the folks examining me recommended that I get a mole on my back looked at. The dermatologist was booked for quite a while, but I finally got in and had it removed.

On Thursday I got the result of the biopsy: malignant melanoma. I believe that my Breslow's depth was 5.2 mm. On Monday I have a PET scan to determine more.

I'll try to keep everybody posted.

Update: For the curious, here is what the paperwork might look like.
