A few months ago I noticed that one corner of my thumbnail was a bit black. I assumed that I’d got some dirt in it but when I tried to get it out, nothing happened. Then I thought I might have got some felt tip in it when I was playing with the children.
Then I noticed that it was spreading under the skin. This was a bit weird, so I trotted off to my GP. She thought it was a fungal infection and sent me off to the dermatologist.
The dermatologist was very thorough and careful, called in a colleague to check her diagnosis and had a photo taken. She said it was a pseudonomas and here were some drops to use.
I used them 2 and 3 times a day for the last 6 weeks – can’t say I can see much difference. I’ve cut the nail down as far as possible to cut out the weird bit.
I went back to the skin doctor yesterday. She looked at it again, said it had changed character, called in her colleague again who had agreed, then sent me off for more photos.
And she’s referring me to the consultant, and I’m to go to hospital for a biopsy.
And it might be carcinoma 8|
And if it is then I will have to lose some of my thumb 88|
Now that will affect my typing!!
Ho hum, no point in worrying until I find out whether there’s anything to worry about – and there’s probably not much point in worrying then, either :no:
But easier said than done :**:
So back to the prayer deck :yes:
