Update on todays Dermatology appointment

So my news is good. Attended the Dermatology clinic. The consultant examined my arm the dark area he said is a Lentigo meligna so not dangerous but to keep an eye on it.  The pinkish area on the back of my hand is a Actinic keratosis. He said this is pre cancerous. He asked if I would agree to him treating there and then with liquid nitrogen, I agreed and he zapped it twice. Now have a huge blister in that area but he said it should heal and leave a pale mark. I have a 6 month open appointment at the clinic if there are any changes or I have concerns.So I have been very fortunate and can not fault how quickly all this happened from GP's appointment to today.

Wishing everyone else good out comes on their journeys
