I would like to connect with anyone who has been diagnosed with DFSP. I was diagnosed and treated in 11/04. Anyone with any insight into this type of cancer would be helpful. Thank you.

Hi,
I have been battling a dfsp on my head for over twenty years. I am presently in the process of having surgery. It is important to follow up every 6 months to see if it recurred. Where was yours located? what treatment did you have?

It was located on my shoulder near my clavacle. I had a wide area excission to 3mm margins which was clear. I have had ct scans every three months since with no reoccurance. My biggest fear is a reoccurance.

Hi, I am the mother of a 15 yr old girl just diagnosed with DFSP last week. It is located in a similar area that your was. We were told it was a cyst and found out after the fact that it was DFSP. I realize it has been a few years for you and I hope you have not had a re-occurance. I would appreciate any information you would be willing to share with me since your surgery (did you have mohs?) in hopes of helping my daughter cope with this. We are scheduled to see a Dermatologist who specialized in this next week. It is all so new for us.
