Grosjman On The Gurney - The Sequel

At the end of last month I had a suspect mole removed in hospital, and found myself unexpectedly chatting to the consultant about my perfume hobby while on the operating table. (Original post here.)

I have now had the biopsy results back from the consultant who performed the procedure - as his letter is also a little surprising, I thought it worth quoting here:

"Further to your operation on 30 September, I am pleased to be able to advise you that the lesion removed was a benign seborrhoeic keratosis. There was no sign of skin cancer.

I trust the wound is healing well. Incidentally, I enjoyed your account of the operation on your blog."

  7. Hi Josephine,

    It is a relief, yes! And thanks to the doctor's precision excision, that would be "the country formerly known as moleland" now...

  8. Hi lovethescents,

    I am wondering if reading the patient's blog (as applicable) may become a standard feature of the hospital's aftercare service?

  17. Thanks, Farah! Maybe I should find some fragrant medical topic that might be of interest to the doctor - one on contact dermatitis, for example... : - )
