My fiancee had a mole on the middle of his chest removed and tested and it came back he had stage II melanoma. He's 35 and we have a two year old daughter together. He still has to see a specialist in ann arbor, michigan and i'm scared as to what they're going to do. How much skin are they going to take off? What's going to happen after? I was looking at this melanoma website and they said something about survival rate after treatment was 5 to 10 years. Does that mean he's going to live 10 years at the most? Maybe i'm just reading the website the wrong way? If anyone here knows some answers, please let me know. I'm so scared of loosing him at this young age and scared he's not going to be around to see our daughter grow up.
