It doesn't seem to count as a very big thing, but I had a little skin cancer cut out of my forehead a week ago. Today I get the stitches removed. The reason it doesn't seem like a big deal is that the actual cutting was most like to a trip to the dentist. And I've had conversations since then (due to the ever-present band-aid on my head) about skin cancers in general where they were referred to as "a nuisance". So it really doesn't seem like news to me, but there it is.

PS - I long for the day when all cancers are mere "nuisances".
