Years ago I noticed a red blobby patch on my scalp. I decided that I would give it a year to clear up, and then I would go and see the Doctor.
It neither shrank nor grew, but after five years I got round to having it looked at, and got sent to dermatology for an expert opinion. Bowen's disease. But it sounds more dramatic to call it squamous cell carcinoma in situ. They froze it off. The treatment got the main blob, but left a couple of satellites.
Over the past three years it has gradually been coming back. I was back at dermatology again on Tuesday and the Dr had another go with the liquid nitrogen. I've got a follow up appointment for 1st August.
