Wow. This is pretty sad. In the U.S., if you have a suspicious mole you’d like looked at by a dermatologist, you’ll have to wait 3-4 weeks, but if you want Botox, you’ll get in right away. In Canada, it wasn’t clear how quickly you’d get in for Botox, but one thing was clear. If you had a suspicious mole you wanted looked at, expect to wait 6 weeks. but over 100000 people managed to get injected with Botox in 2005. It’s not looking good.
With skin cancer being one of the most dangerous cancers, it’s a pretty sad statement that investigating potential cancer gets pushed back in line behind oliminating wrinkles for the vane and rich among us. I wonder how the vane and rich would feel about losing all their hair and looking very dead.
