thats how mine started off.it began as a tiny cut that just refused to heal.as it was circular in shape it grew exponentially in size,swapping between bleeding,doing horrible crusting,being very painful to touch ( to the point i couldnt have clothing touch it ).sometimes it would stop for a bit ,sometimes it wouldnt.then as i said a few months ago it started growing quite quickly so much so even i got a little worried.thankfully my wife (previous skin cancer sufferer) is a lot more carefull than i am.im not forward to the chop as im going to have to be awake for it and its right in front so ive got frontside seats...
thank you for the support fairfax its huge appreciated and makes the whole saga a lot more easy to deal with.

Best wishes and positive vibes to one and all going through this stuff. Take solace from the progress that's been made in treating and managing the big C. Take time for yourself throughout.

If you have an ipad, get procreate, I am not by any stretch artistic but it kept me amused for weeks. It's like the hockney ipad pics and you can import a photo to 'trace' to get you started. Wonderfully absorbing for hours at a time. Got me through my convalescence a while back.

As did amazon prime with all the movies, old and new. And iplayer etc.
