The good news is nothing was cancerous.
The other news, which isn't really bad news, is that they think that these lumps under my skin were more of the necrobiosis lipoidica.
They feel that the best explanation that they didn't surface ON the skin instead of under it was that my weak immune system WAS trying to protect my skin from the condition.
Most people who have this NL have diabetes, but I do not. My glucose level is fine.
I seem to get the NL any place I have a mosquito bite or where I've had stitches. So, I figure that even though it didn't surface THIS time, as my 4 incisions heal, that I'll probably have an elbow full of them.
This is a photo of someone elses NL. The first photo isn't as serious as the condition can get as seen in the 2nd photo...
