I was diagnosed in May of 02 with a melanoma insitu on my left breast. Thankfully, it was still in the earliest stages and very small. A re-excision of the tissue was performed,and it came back clear as well. What concerns me as I read through these e mails is that no blood tests were done for me, and it sounds like this is common procedure. I am feeling very anxious and suddenly every mole on body has become suspect. I guess I just wanted to hear from some other people who are dealing with this too- I feel guilty if I talk about it too much with my family and friends because I feel like I will just worry them, but I can't seem to let this go, and now I'm wondering if I need a blood test.
