Moley Meg

NB:  If you’re squeamish, you may want to skip this photo gallery. 

Today I took Moley Meg to the doc and had a problematic mole removed from her shoulder.  When you have a history of melanoma in your family, you don’t mess around with moles.  I took my camera along and took some very interesting pictures of the process.  I didn’t know if I would handle it well or not, but thankfully there was very little blood so it was really just fascinating to be able to watch and document the whole thing.

I recommend you pop this gallery out to full screen and make sure to read the captions for each photo. 🙂  (But not if you don’t like watching medical procedural shows on TV… this is kind of like that, but without all the romance.)

    Wow, that was a lot of flesh to remove for one little mole! I am very “moley” myself and have had several moles removed, all of them much larger than that one, but none of them required stitches! I did not see any captions, by the way. I have no idea how to access them. Meg has my sympathy. When I had moles removed, it was very painful for some time afterwards.

      Yes, I’ve always wished I could be one of those tan people for whom the sun is a friend instead of a danger. Alas, I’ve passed my light European skin on to my kiddos. For the captions, you should be able to see a little italicized “i” in the upper left corner of the photos, that, when hovered over, will pop out the caption.
