You're so kind. ah yes, busy couple months - lots of tests and the discovery that I am anonmolous (sp?) but - thank goodness, benign. Whew. this good news after so much worry came along with bad news about a friend - hence my failure to udpate -- but thanks all around for the advice and good thoughts - it all helps so much ~~~
Thank YOU. yes, the patch is gone - and, in some ways, I guess I feel fortunate that I followed up on it so quickly considering that it led to the discovery of this - whatever it is. I see another doctor tomorrow who has all the scans and my history -and we'll see what he says.

I didn't think anything of it, applied aloe and went on my way. There was no pain, redness, swelling or heat. Days later, it's still there.
