1: something that is vain, empty, or valueless
The cut will be ugly because any doctor worth their salt wants to make sure they do it right and get good margins when removing a possible melanoma. Trust me, you want that too. Get over it. That ugly cut is not, I repeat, not, worth dying over. It will heal. And, yes, it will leave a scar that won't be pretty. And it will leave a big dent or impression where your trouble spot was. And, yes, it will take time, maybe years depending on where it was removed from, to fill in completely. It won't be pretty unless you see a plastic surgeon. Get over it. It's not worth dying over.
In the brief time this has been up, I've been reminded that the fears are real. They are, and I really do hope no one thinks I'm disregarding those fears. I'm not. The fears are real and the scars are real and when the two are put together because there is a fear of scarring, that is very real and the younger the person, the more real that fear is. Melanoma is real, too and it plays for keeps. It feeds off those fears and wants nothing more than for you to give into them. Please don't. Giving in can cost you more than scars ever will. It can cost you your life.
