Punch Biopsy

So yesterday I had my first appt at the clinic to check on this skin cancer I have. They said if they could get one from the lab, they'd do a punch biopsy. I don't recall having this done last time. In fact, I'm pretty darn sure I'd remember it. So I looked it up while I was waiting and it showed them deadening the skin, using the punch tool, which is this horrible drilling cutter thingy and then stitching it up.

They did get the punch tool but no deadening at all. She said that would hurt worse and it would interfere with the results. Never heard that before but okay. So she kept emphasizing that it'd hurt and it did. But the good thing is is lasted just a few seconds - twice. Then she had to clip the sample and pull it out so that hurt too but now it's all done. I just have to wait on the results in a few weeks.
