So on Thursday morning I was face-down on a table, going "AARGH" as the local anaesthetic went in. After that, I felt some tugging and pulling, and in under 1 hour it was done. The doctor cut out a piece 10mm by 20mm, but only a few millimetres thick. He sutured the gap shut -- which felt weird.
It still feels a bit weird. I'm on the occasional Nurofen to manage the pain, but I hardly need them.
The stitches come out in 7 days, and I should have the pathology back by then.
It didn't look like a cancer, but...
