Interesting.

But as one whose wife was told this week that a couple lopped-off spots looked hinky (melanoma-ish, but not quite melanoma), I'm getting a kick out of this. Hopefully when the specialist can make sure the spots are all the way gone we'll find out that there never was anything to worry about. But for now we're a little nervous.

I work in a hospital, and occasionally come in contact with people who are suffering from advanced forms of cancer.  Let me tell you, you don't need to be a dog to smell it.  It's a smell you will never forget.

Zing. This is not news to anyone who's ever been on an oncology floor. Dirty old man crotch probably smells better. Probably.

Melanoma is no joke....don't forget to apply that sunscreen liberally!
Dad dodged a bullet with stage 3 melanoma, missed by 3 farking doctors.

/is it just me or is the sun getting stronger?

It'd beat a colonoscopy.  Lots of people avoid those because they're undignified and uncomfortable.  Anything that increases the diagnosis and treatment rate, without appreciably increasing the rate of false positives, would be an improvement.

Indeed. I have a 62 year old friend who is going thru various levels of hell fighting it, now in his brain and lungs. Watch your heads, bald dudes.

It wasn't until my fiancé mentioned something that I noticed that my psoriasis skin smells different as well. It's slightly sickly sweet, like an overripe fruit. I'm sure it won't be long until we have sniff tests for a lot of diseases.

Here's mine:

One bottle of beer on the wall,
one bottle of beer,
go to the store,
buy some more,
two bottles of beer on the wall...

Two bottles of beer on the wall,
two bottles of beer,
go to the store,
buy some more,
three bottles of beer on the wall...

ad infinitum.

There's a million anecdotes about somebody getting a growth tested because their dog wouldn't stop sniffing at it. The only thing I'm wondering is why they haven't made trained dogs readily available.

Had a friend whose dog kept smelling at her lower leg like it was a jerky treat. Yep. Cancer.

Ronin_S: The only thing I'm wondering is why they haven't made trained dogs readily available.


Readily available samples. Cancer is such a beast of a disease because it's a mutation, so everyone's can be different. The reason behind those anecdotes is because the dog knows its owner's scent, and that scent changes.
