So, more than a year ago, I got a small zit above and to the left of my lip. I don't really pop zits unless I really need to. This one never got to that point and I just left it alone. It never seemed to heal all that well though. It left a small red sore spot. This happens though, and they usually take a while to heal and go away. Well, this one began to turn dark. It looked like a sore. If I squeezed it a bit, some blood would ooze out. The sore would heal, and then get dark again. Why didn't I realize that this could be skin cancer??? Just now, I squeezed yet more blood out and it just dawned on me. Probably because my dad was also just diagnosed with skin cancer. UGH! Now, I'm a wreck!!! I've had this more almost a year, and it hasn't grown at all. So, could it be skin cancer?? From what I read, it seems to be. I'm going to go to the doctor as soon as I get off of work on Monday. I don't have health insurance and I make very little, so I need to work. Plus, I've had this for a year. What's another work day? Good think I get off at 1:35 right now. ETA: Hmmm, so I asked my mom about it. She said that it doesn't really look like skin cancer. I still don't get why it doesn't heal then. I wonder, since it's been a year and it hasn't grown, could it still be cancer??? Anyways, I think I'll still go make an appointment on Monday. Won't hurt to get it checked out.
