Fortunately it is treatable and Minnesota has excellent doctors for that kind of thing. I think he'll beat this.

We need to clarify when we say Skin Cancer. The common kind, basal cell, is on the surface and easily treatable. Ryan has squamous cell, which is below the surface and more serious. Malignant melanoma is the deadly one.
If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

I know all about skin cancer and have had all three types including the deadly malignant melanoma. I've had about 8 surgeries (not embellishing). My prognosis is excellent as all were removed before they metastasized. Hopefully Terry Ryan will be just fine as if caught in time, they usually can be eradicated.
