Last Friday, I had a small surgery to remove what might turn out to be a basal cell carcinoma. (James may think I'm just trying to copy Barry).

The excision was virtually pain free, and took all of 15 minutes from the injection of the anesthetic to the final suture. I have three stitches, as you can see. The incision was about one centimeter long.

Hopefully, all will turn out for the best. Basal cell carcinomas, if that's what it turns out to be, are a very harmless form of skin cancer. But it will serve to remind me to slather up in SPF 90 more often then I do presently.
