Soon I will go to the old man skin doctor who identifies skin conditions in about 5 seconds. Never have to wait in line. Always got things right so far.
I got a swollen bit in my ear lobe and he’s gonna cut it out today. Hopefully I can get pictures.

No pictures. And quite a shock, which I posted on FB.
Shocked, I am! I had a sebaceous cyst behind my ear lobe (like against the skull, not ear lobe itself) and I asked the doctor if he could take it out. He said yes, and did it today. I didn't know he would take the skin too!!! I asked to see the cyst and they were like "that's the cyst and this side is skin." That was my favorite behind-my-left-earlobe skin!!! Is that normal to remove a square cm of skin? Like a cubic cm altogether.
I am most relieved with Jaime’s reply
That’s crazy man! It’s your flesh! But we do replenish skin cells totally every 5 months so you need not be attached to something you can grow back in less than a year! I know you know that though just stating the obvious to cheer you up about losing your favourite behind-your-left-earlobe skin!
