I was diagnosed on 9/13. Surgical removal of mass on 10/3. P.E.T scan on 10/25. Section of dissected gland had 3 lymph nodes,one had cancerous cells and the other 2 were clear. I have had 3 suspicious moles removed from navel,shoulder and back. I required further removal of tissue on the shoulder and back. The shoulder tissue had Melanoma cells
to a certain level and clear on the lower and perimeter of tissue removed. My P.E.T scan ( full body )
came back clear. I have an appointment at M.D. Anderson in the future. Should I keep my appointment at M.D. Anderson or rely on my local
caregivers evaluation? I donít want to
make a 6.5 hour trip to be told what I
already know.
