Mimas' page

Mimas' skin tumour. It started with a bite wound over the right eye. The wound healed nicely leaving a little bald spot. About three weeks later a small nodular growth appeared. Like a little hard lump, easy to move around under the skin. At first it was covered with normal skin, but after a while it ruptured and got a black scab. The scab fell off and the growth started to grow again until it ruptured and got scabbed again. This repeated itself for some time. It was removed surgically and didn't return. The tumour was a mastocytoma (mast cell tumour).
