Melanie-WilliamsMelanie Williams (36) set up a photo on Facebook that could save your life.  Initially, she thought that she has a fungal infection on her thumb, but suddenly found out that it was the worst nightmare. She has cancer.

Williams shared the picture with the explanation, “you see it on my thumb. Do you know what it is? It is a skin cancer, “she explained.

She underlined why she decided to share her problem with other people.

“Maybe I could avoid a trouble, if I immediately went to the doctor. I do not want your pity; I want to change your mind. Please check all growths on the skin and tell the people around you to control them. “she wrote.

Williams said if she would have waited for a little while, she might lose much more than a thumb.
