Ask Amy: Telling The Truth About Skin Cancer Scar Could Help Save Others

Dear Amy: “Recovering” is a private person who doesn’t want to explain her skin cancer scar to colleagues.

Not wanting to explain a burn on my chin from a mishap with my hot electric curling iron, I responded to questions from the men I work with using this simple explanation: “I cut myself while shaving.”

We had a laugh and this ended the queries. — Recovered

Dear Recovered: Great answer.
