Recently diagnosed with above diagnosis. Have decided to try Yervoy treatment. Will have second treatment tomorrow. Never had any symptoms other than having a melanoma mole and then surgery to remove more skin and lymph glands to make sure all cancer removed. Seemed to be successful. First 3 month Pet Scan was negative so went to second PS and showed some spots..followed up by CT Scan and still inconclusive. So then 3 months later, November 2nd 2012, Pet Scan showed what regular Oncologist said was metastatic cancer but needed a biopsy of the lung. Had it done and was positive. Had another CT without and with contrast. Showed more spots in lungs and also in liver. Brain scan was negative at this point.
Started treatment and have had possible side effects except maybe small itching points that have moved around on the front of my body for the past week. No lymph gland invasion which is I guess unusual but guess maybe better?
So anyone else having this situation? I am healthy and show no symptoms like shortness of breath or fatigue. Lucky that way!
