recently Dx-ed, next step?
I am 26 yo male. Nov 7 - removed 4x6 mm mole with discolorations, no ulcer. Lab report is very short: "MM, margins seem free of malignancy". No depth, no mitotic, etc. Nov 16 - removed 5 mm skin around the initial spot "as precaution". Dr staged 1B, and said nothing else is needed, just observation. This all was in state of Maryland, I moved out early Dec.
Internet says: PET scanning and sentinel lymphnode biopsy might be needed. So question is do I need to pursue arranging these for me?
I would greatly appreciate if other survivors kindly offer me support and share their experiences what I should do now?
Thank you all.
