New here...skin cancer

Hello all! I just found out I have a rare type of skin cancer called dermatofibrosarcoma. I had a lump removed and it turned out to be a cancerous tumor. I'm told it's not that bad of a cancer, but I am wondering if anyone else has this same cancer and how it went for them. The Dr's are telling me that they are going to have to go back and do surgery to make sure they get all the cancer out in the area where the tumor was. I'm worried because when you're told you have the big word "cancer" it is scary! Some insight would be appreciated! Thank you!
