Answers to your "Nathan Update" questions

OK, so the doctor looked over Nathan's lump and said that it felt like scar tissue. He said he could actually pinch the whole lump. He said that it can take scar tissue any where from 3-6 months to disappear. He said if he were to go ahead and remove it Nathan would have a scar (he said unless what most doctors who aren't plastic surgeons believe, you can't hide a scar in the eyebrow, it will cause a bald area.. which is fine if that's what we have to do, but we also don't want to have any unnecessary surgeries if we don't have to). He said the fact that it hasn't gotten bigger from the time we first noticed it and has in fact gotten smaller gave him the conclusion that it's just scar tissue. Now if it grows at any point we are to call and he will get seen immediately. That's why he asked us to come back in 3 months.

I had a mole taken off my eyebrow about 4 years ago. I thought for sure it would make a bald patch in my brow, but it didn't! I couldn't believe it.

I'm not sure how big Nathan's lump is, but it's probably bigger than a mole, huh? :)
