Hi Dina

No, I am afraid that was properly my fault - probably a man thing, putting up with a bit of pain and discomfort until my wife pointed out that what I think is a bit of a growth on the side of my nose has had split open and was bleeding!

I have had one or 2 skin tags removed in the past - as I used to cycle a lot, come rain, come shine, I have always been on the lookout for bits of growths that might be cancerous.

I am now talking to St Thomas is about trying to sort this out.
