Have just joined after getting a diagnosis of a BCC on the top left of my forehead by letter last week after a small biopsy for a 2mm spot/ulcer that was taking ages to close (had for around 3 months). I have found these forums a bit of a comfort so far as did what I'm sure most have done initially and looked at Google and seen horrendous photos and went in to quite a dark place.
I have been referred to a plastic surgeon and am unsure if that is because on the face they are the best people to do small/less visible scars or because they think it needs more reconstructive work but I'm lying awake every night hoping its not the latter and a simple quick removal. As embarrassing as it is to admit I literally spent three hours looking in to a magnifying mirror at every little pore/spot on my face and surrounding areas and after seeing some of the photos of removal of nose ones and am literally a complete wreck and just stressing what if get one there after and can't snap out of it especially as I think back now to couple of times getting sunburnt when younger etc. I know IF I did get any there may be other treatments anyway such as creams, photodynamic therapy etc but just can't seem to think rationally at the minute :(
