For several years I've had some reddish brown dry spots on the cheek, above an eyebrow. Our family doctor said they were nothing to worry about. After awhile I asked for a referral to the dermatologist. She advised I have Actinic Keratosis, which is considered pre cancerous damaged skin. I've spent a lot of time outdoors in my life and knew something was up. So if you have those dry spots or slight change of skin color with some sensitivity get in to that dermatologist. My treatment was liquid nitrogen with followups.
@OreTimber thank you for posting this warning to everyone!!!!!Be aware of any changes in your body and go to the doctor if something seems amiss!!!!! Im glad you noticed it and were able to have it treated. I wish my fiance Dan hadn't ignored his symptoms for so many months until it got to the point of no return. Thank you for this.
