    Two beautiful words, “not cancer.” I’m sure the weight on your heart was lifted with the news. I am so glad for you Pamela. A prayer was answered.

    Although I don’t know what “severely abnormal” means in relation to a mole, I’m sure loving the words “not cancer.” Praise God! Time to celebrate!

      Severely abnormal means the cells were changing, but had not developed into cancer. I am grateful.
