I had an enucleation in my right due to melenoma in dec of 2008. This did not spread anywhere else in the body. March of 2009 I had two skin melenomas that I had surgicaly removed with great sucess and tested lymphnodes and they were neg also.. Now in Sept of 2009 I had 5 spots show up on my lungs. I have mri of the adomen every three mo and CT of the chest every six. After finding the spots on my lungs I had another pet scan and it was neg also. The noduels were around 5 to 6mm at this time and to small to biopsy. So we had another ct of chest in dec 2010 and one grew from 6mm to 9mm. Still couldn't do a biopsy because of the blood vessels around the noduel . We then had a pet scan in feb 2011 and this one spot grew fro 9mm to 12 mm and had minimal hypermetobolic uptake of suv 2.5. They also said that ther were numerous additional pulmonary noduels show up but were to small to evaluate and were not grossly hypermetobolic. Now on monday we are going for a needle biopsy. Doc says he thinks it is melenoma coming back and a very slim chance it could be anything else because of my history.I'm wondering if this could be some other than melenoma. I've had these spots for over a year and only one is starting to grow a little bit.I don't smoke or drink or do any of these things. Would appreciate any coments thank you and god bless.
