Welcome back Kiwi, glad it wasn’t malignant. Even if its unpleasant it is good to take care of things right away. (Reminds me that I should make an appointment with the dentist!)
I do this whenever something is wrong, in this case at least I tried my best but of course there are always diseases or injuries we can’t defeat. I hope you feel new power and motivation to live another 50 years or so!
