I had a mole all my life. It changed in 2001 and I had surgery to remove it. It was melanoma. They did another surgery and removed three times the size of the mole, I had a skin graft, and they removed a lymph node. I couldn’t walk for three months. In 2011, a new mole appeared in the same place and was removed. It was another cancerous mole. So far, so good. "This is very serious. It’s a matter of life and death. It’s your choice."

Who would think you could get cancer in the same place in the same skin graft area twice in a lifetime. I go every year to get checked now and keep covered and always wear sunblock. This is very serious. It’s a matter of life and death. It’s your choice. Be careful and have fun. I’m blessed. Enjoy.
