    Believe it or not, my husband was diagnosed in February and we had a series of deaths in the family. Our dermatologist was fine waiting to excise it "later" and we waited 4 weeks before wide local excision. They were able to get all of it and had clear margins.
    Husband diagnosed with Malignant Melanoma, 2/5
    Stage 1aNOMO
    Wide Local Excision
    Pathology showed clear margins.
