About a month ago I had a removal of a spot the size of a dime on my Butt - Thats right - have you ever heard of cancer on the Butt - and no I never did nude sunbathing. Any way they said they got all of it and 5 stitches later I went home. They just told me to get a PAP and monitor my self regularly. Any one else out there with Cancer on the Butt.

Will you be able to begin your injections in the future?
