I was diagnosed in July, 2007 with melanoma that was found in a cyst in my armpit.Since then I have had a Ct scan, PET scan, MRI of the brain, and this past September had 13 lymph nodes removed. Everything has been negative so far and I got very depressed wondering why I am I going through all of this. My oncologist says I am most likely a stage 3 since it did spread but they could never find the poin of origin. I will be starting Interferon (high dose) on October 29th. I called the Moffitt Center in Tampa and they say it sounds like my doctors want to be aggressive and take on a curist approach. First, does all this sound normal and what is " a curist approach"?
