Hi everyone. I am not a melanoma patient but my best friend just had melanoma removed from her ankle. She lives in Nashville and called last night to tell me about her surgery. They removed the melanoma, which the doctor said started on a scar she had gotten from waxing her legs. Anyway, they checked her lymph nodes in her groin area and they were clear. The doctors say they got it all. I myself am a 18 month cancer survivor and still going through treatment. I don't know a thing about Melanoma. Can any of you tell me about it and what my friend can expect? I want to support her anyway I can but I need a little education. I decided the best way is to talk to people who are living it!
Thank you for any input...God Bless each and everyone of you!!
