Hi Judy. I have invassive nodular melanoma. I am normally just fine but the other day I had a scan that looks like I have a tumor. I am going in for follow up in the next few days. My attitude is very good. If you want to chat...e-mail me gnail@sky.net

High, I'm Dan, my mother has the same as yourself, ocular melanoma, but now it has matastized in her liver and lung, she starts a study on Monday the 27th. They are going to use DTIC, I will try and get her to join this talk group. She was a very healthy 76 year old. We have hopes that this might help her.

Hello Dan:
I would recommend mpip.org as a discussion/support group for your mom. It is a highly superior chat group for melanoma patients. It is much easier to navigate, specific to melanoma, and I think your mom will find what she needs on that site.

Good luck and my prayers to you and she for a quick recovery and success with DTIC.

Just been told I have melanoma, my name is Kevin. I would sure like to talk to someone in the same boat. It sure is strange how everyone is reacting around me.

Hi Terri, my name is matt, I hope somebody has already responded to you, but anyway, I have melanoma stage 3B and would be happy to share with you any knowledge that I have. One thing everyone says is to be positive, this can sound easier than doing it. just remember, all this misery is just temporay.

good luck

Hi, my name is Kirsten and I was diagnosed with stage 2 melanoma on april 1st, 2006 I was wondering how you are now? I'm still scared and a little shaken of the idea but, my doctor says that is very normal for someone my age to deal with this.
