Good news, the skin cancer my mom had removed was one of the better kinds to have. Basal cell, although there were still cells in the margin, which preferably would have been clear. But the doctor will continue to monitor it once a month for a while, and if anything does show up, the scalp should have regained enough elasticity to allow for more removal. He said basal cell typically doesn’t spread, which was wonderful news to have.
