Hi slinda,
I am a melanoma survivor. My story is found at Dancing Through The Intermissions. If I can help you in any way, you can email me. Tell your doctor about the pain in your armpit. The depth of your M is probably good news. Did they give you the Clarks level or Breslow? Linda Talbott

I'm sorry. I found out on January. My mole was on my leg and was 1.72mm so I had a wide excision and radical groin dissection for the lymph nodes after finding it had spread there. Starting to come out of it some. What ended up happening to you? Was the pain in your armpit lymph node involvement?

...what you are going through. I found out on Oct. 19, 2001, that I had melanoma, after having a lesion removed by my family doctor...my thickness was 0.95 and the tumor was on my right shoulder blade. I went in on Nov. 1 for surgery. They cut margins around the original tumor site and also removed two lymphnodes from under my right arm. I have developed lymphedema in the limb and on my back...have had as much as 80cc's of fluid drained from around my scar. I realize that my reply is a bit late, this is the first time I have posted here as well. But I would like to know how things turned out for you (if you come back here and read this..lol).
