Do You have a Birth Mark?

I have one on my leg and the kids would always ask me about it, and I was always embarassed as a child. Do you have one, how did you as a child handle the question?

  • I had a large one on my right forearm. It was so dark that it was almost black and about as a big as a quarter. It was there when I was born but started to change and get bumpy and had some hair growing from it when I was 10. I had to have it removed. I don't remember anyone ever saying anything about it before that, but when it was removed there were cancerous cells and a lot of the flesh in my forearm had to be removed. It left a large concave scar. The scar made kids talk and ask questions. It isn't as bad as it used to be, but even my own kids have asked about it. Sometimes I jokingly tell children a big dog bit me!

  • Several. I had the massive strawberry birthmarks. They puff up to the point people think they will pop. They have since lost the "puff" and you can not see them.

  • misses nick I'm sure glad you caught the cancer in your arm early and had it removed. Wish they'd find a damn cure for that.
