Anthony, are you saying it was a tumor? I can't imagine a scratch would make you think about anything in particular.

gregw, no it wasnt a tumor but a hole where a pimple got scratched open and wouldnt heal for over a month, i understand what your saying but it had all the earmarks of a melinoma, my g.p. here in stamford grew up near me in brooklyn and our dads both worked for the transit auth., hes a very good doc. and after doing my own research i decided to listen to him dispite the fact that my body has allways healed incredibly well, if i had a limb ripped of it would grow back over night, something like this gets you thinking. tony, thanks for your kind words. :savewave:
