Whew! Just excised the largest skin nodule I've ever seen.

I'm pretty sure it's a superficial hemangioma, but we'll see what pathology has to say.

Thing was huge! Looked like a very large marble. It would barely fit into the specimen container.

It was large enough that I thought it had developed its own arterial system. I kept a hemostat clamped to the base of it while I sliced it off, just in case. When I loosened the hemostat, no arterial spurt. Good news.

That was a nail-biter!

Can't wait to see the biopsy report!

6. Yikes!

I always thought that hemangioma's were dangerous to remove because of bleeding issues. That said, I'm a bookkeeper and not a medical professional.

Well done! I hope the biopsy report is clear.

7. Hemangiomas in highly-vascular organs like the liver, yeah.

But superficial ones? Nah. I do it all the time. Today's was just the largest ever. And I don't have confirmation yet that that's what it was. We'll see...

8. Is it wrong for me to say I love watching videos like that on YT?

I guess it is because I wanted to be a nurse when I was younger and I just appreciate the skill required.

I am glad it all went well! Thanks for this report!

15. I'm the same. I can watch open heart surgery or gross stuff like this but I crawl out of my skin...

... at the sight of broken bones or teeth - like people face planting off a skateboard.

18. My first open heart surgery viewing was 1978. Dr Debakey, Quadruple Bypass.

I remember sitting in the gallery and watching the surgery. It was fascinating, really.

A most incredible day. I am in awe of the stamina of such heroes.
