Check your MOLES! for Basal Cell Skin Cancer

I had a mole on my shoulder removed last Wednesday and the Doctor sent me a note today that the biopsy report came back that it has basal cell skin cancer.
So his note says that he has to "excise" this skin lesion. I read on the internet that this means to get the cancer cells out, or a tumor if there is one.

I'm going back to my Dr. on Friday the 16th to check the rest of my body and decide wether he will try to excise it or send me to a plastic surgeon - because it is 6 mm.

I'm hoping for prayers about the time, pain, scarring and anything else that will be done.
