An Ordinary Habit Left This Nurse With A Coin-Sized Hole In Her Nose.

This is Jade Thrasher.

These days, it seems like we've reached a point of health awareness and research where we know that certain things are definitely bad for us. Smoking, for example, is decreasing in the states every year, as many now realize that if you smoke, it's not a matter of if you'll get sick, but when. Certain foods have been revealed to be totally unhealthy, and things like "low-fat" treats sweetened with chemicals don't have the same appeal that they used to.

Unfortunately, despite our current awareness for what's good for us, some of the damage has already been done. Take, for instance, the case of Jade Thrasher. This young woman had a habit for over a decade that she didn't quite realize was doing so much damage -- until, of course, it was too late. Read her harrowing tale below, and if you partake in the same habit, it might be time to consider giving it a rest. Warning: Some of these images may be disturbing to look at.

Until two years ago, Thrasher had a habit that she participated in regularly -- little did she know it would end up threatening her life.

She did 20 minute sessions in the tanning beds, three times a week for about 11 years. Two years ago, she noticed something terrifying.

It was 2014 when she got the spot on her nose.
The spot kept bursting and forming a sore, then failed to heal.

Biopsies revealed that the growth was actually skin cancer and she would need to have the cells cut away.
Thrasher said that the doctors ended up cutting out a large circle from the skin on her nose, and when she saw it, she was horrified.

She avoided having to get chemotherapy and radiation because when she first saw the spot, she acted quickly.

But the situation didn't come without consequences.
"After surgery, for three weeks I could not bend over or do anything for myself because the graft on my sore was so crucial that I wasn’t allowed to apply pressure to my head," she said.

But the situation didn't come without consequences.
She's also completely changed her outlook on tanning.
Now, she stays out of the sun (especially tanning beds) and always wears sunscreen. "When you’re a teenager you think you’re invincible," she said. "But I covered my face while using the sunbed and I still got cancer."
