Maryland medical malpractice attorney Renee Boston explains how a friend of hers is dealing with her recent diagnosis of skin cancer.

Yesterday a good friend of mine finally had that mystery spot on her should examined by a doctor. After a visual examination the doctor decided to biopsy the bump. Today I want to share her story with you.

She’s gone for quite some time with this mystery bump on her shoulder and although she didn’t notice anything too “strange”, the spot had changed in color, shape, and diameter. Today the doctor called her and told her that the sample was malignant, this means cancerous.

She is in the early stages of her diagnoses. We don’t know if it has spread but we pray that it has not. Now the work begins for my friend to stay in contact with her doctors and to ask questions about anything that she doesn’t understand. She must be a proactive patient.

Why did we bring you this video? To show you that cancer can happen to anyone at anytime. But also, if you notice any changes in your body or any moles or skin conditions be sure to have them checked out. The best way to treat the disease and possibly increase your chances for survival is to get tested and treated as soon as possible and follow medical advice.
