I went to see the doctor today for this wart-like thing I have on my head. It has been there for years – maybe even decades – and I’ve never really felt the need to do anything about it. Lately it has been annoying me, and I often feel I’m just a slip of the finger away from yanking it off unintentionally.
The doctor gave it a quick examination and then told me the best way to deal with it was to freeze it off at a temperature of minus 196 degrees. So… pretty cold, right? He said it would sting a little, but he was wrong: it hurt quite a bit. It was like a bunch of very sharp needles attacking me all at once. I’m not even sure it’s safe to pour liquid nitrogen on a person’s head without taking precautions!
Anyway, he said it should fall off within a couple of weeks, and I have another appointment just before Christmas so he can see how it’s progressing.
