It is very seldom that I see my family doctor as he cannot cure my MS nor halt my ageing process!
But I decided to pay him a visit after I discovered a small lump near my left eye. The lump didn't hurt at all, but it did affect my vision.
I told my doctor this, and added that I suspected it was a problem with my tear duct. However, after looking at the lump my doctor told me that it was in fact a cyst that should be removed.
As I was wondering which hospital he would send me to, I noticed he already had a tray in his hand on which there were some frightening instruments such as scalpels and swabs! Before I knew what was happening he took a scalpel in his hand and cut out the cyst!
Then, with a sadistic gleam in his eyes(?!), he said he would have to cauterise the wound. My thoughts turned to a scene from a film where the character, whom after having his hand chopped off, plunged his wrist into a fire to cauterise it! But the doctor just put some cream on it. This stung for a millisecond, then all was OK.
I was glad to have the cyst diagnosed and treated all in one visit.
