Today’s #PSA: If you are unsure about something with regards to your health, get it checked out. Please.

5 years ago today, I went to Moffitt Cancer Center to get a cancerous tumor (DFSP) removed from my leg. I had that little bump on my leg for at least 6 years. Every doctor I saw told me it was “nothing, probably a calcium deposit...”. Because it wasn’t growing, and it wasn’t changing.
Or at least that’s what we thought. Because when I finally went to a plastic surgeon (to have it removed for my own vanity) it turned out that this monster was growing inside my body versus outside of it.
When I got the call back that it was cancer, and I needed to have more of my leg removed, I thought I was gonna loose my leg, or worse.
I was lucky 🍀- only 1,000 people get diagnosed with DFSP per year. And I only needed surgical removal. If I had ignored it any longer - I could have had much greater issues than the large crater in my leg.
So if there is something you’ve been dragging your feet about getting checked- please make an appointment to get it checked out tomorrow! 😘 #bettersafethansorry#getchecked#cancer#fuckcancer
