That Spot on My Arm Wasn’t Cancer

A little good news. That spot on my arm that I had removed last week wasn’t cancer after all.  My doctor told me it is a condition that mimics cancer and it was a good idea that we removed it anyway.  So I don’t have cancer. Whew!

The actual diagnosis was Mild Epidermal Acanthosis with Hypergranulosis with no carcinoma identified.  The short version of that is:  You had a spot on your arm that looked liked cancer but it wasn’t.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.  They must have worked. I am cancer free

I still encourage you to get any spots checked out that don’t look or feel right.  It could be with your regular doctor or at a health fair.  The bottom line is, if you see something out of the ordinary, get it checked out.  You never know, you could be saving your own life.
