I had a spot on my lower left that everyone kept asking about, but i would shrug it off and say that it was nothing. Boy, was I wrong!!! I went to see my Dr. on May 19, 2009 and right away he sent me to a surgeon. I saw that Dr. on May 21, 2009 and went in to surgery May 22, 2009. Talk about a shock!!!!! I had an a large excision & the tumor removed. On May 28,2009 I received the diagnosis, superficial spreading malignant melanoma!!!! A clarks level 3!! I had to wait for the surgery site to heal up for the next surgery on June, 19,2009. The surgeon removed more from the tumor site ( a bigger chunck) and some lympnodes. The path report from that surgery came back negative and the surgeon said he was sure that it was gone. I can't except that, so today I'm seeing my primary Dr. to discuss seeing an cancer Dr. I want to make sure that it's not somewhere else in my body!!!
