Skin tumours may be present when we age. Facial tumours can cause a loss of self esteem in a career lady. After all, first impressions count. One of my clients used to be very particular about her appearance and would have regular beautician appointments when she climbed the corporate ladder and managed 200 staff.
When I met her in 2020, she had retired for some years, I noted that she had a small skin lump below the left eye canthus.
In real life, first impressions do count.

I put the dog under general isoflurane anaesthesia. I used an ink marker to map out the areas where I would take the surrounding skin to cover the large defect after complete excision of the tumour.
As for the retiree lady, her small facial tumour had grown a bit more, but being "old", she couldn't care two hoots about first impressions!
