Most days at NewsChannel 9, I’m sharing other people’s stories. This time, I’m telling my own about Skin Cancer.
I had basal cell carcinoma under my right eye. It’s not nearly as dangerous as melanoma, but much more common.
Untreated, the mark will continue to grow and disfigure the victim’s skin. In my case, my face. The best solution (which doesn’t sound so good as a TV reporter) was to cut it out.
It’s a weird feeling to be a man and wear makeup. In this case, looking at myself that closely every day is the only way I would have noticed anything out of the ordinary.
