I just had basal cell carcinoma removed from under my right eye last October. This bump, which i thought was a pimple, popped up under my left eye over a week ago, and I have a feeling it is not a pimple. =(  It has that raised waxy pearly appearance like my other cancer did.  Please dont bash on my face and long nose... lol... 

Anyone else here dealt with this sort of skin cancer?  Here is my pics from when I got it removed in October.

Soo very sorry to hear of the loss of your Uncle! =( This type is a non-melenoma type, thank goodness, it doesnt usually spread. I have a checkup appointment at the end of March, but I'm wondering if I should move it closer?

Hugs to you. I had 2 suspicious moles removed and sent to biopsy. They came back non cancer. I am getting worried about one on my face now. I used to use a tanning booth years ago and am terrified of cancer.

Thank you as well.  Yes, I was raised near a beach, so I spent a lot of my childhood and teen years out in the sun, I guess it is starting to catch up with me.  Yes, please get yours checked out too.  It is better to catch them early before they spread or cause more damage.

I'm pretty sure that's what my dad had. It started out looking like a pimple, tried to pop it, and it just grew. By month 8, when he went to have it removed. It was huge. He had a hole in his head that was big enough to hold a golf ball. He had a half of a facelift to cover that hole. If its at the end of march I would think you would be ok to wait. Just don't pick at it and what not.

The first one I had, I didnt go to the Dermatologist for it for a good year and a half... it didnt grow a lot during that time, but it would bleed on and off and never went away. I thought it was just an infected pore or something of that nature. Glad I finally went and had it removed.  I go to a specialist here in my town, he does great work and the scar is VERY minimal.. It's more just a pink tint below my eye, no scar.
