    Spindle Cell Melanoma

    Hello. My name is Erick and I am 38. I just found out yesterday that a pre-existing mole on my inner left thigh that I noticed growing was a spindle cell melanoma.

    I was told that it was .28mm deep and I am scheduled to have more of the surrounding tissue removed on April 9th.

    I have done some research on the web, but all I can find concerning this cancer is very little. Does anyone know where I can obtain some more information pretaining to this kind of melanoma?

    Also, I would like to talk with anyone that has been diagnosed with this form of melanoma. Thank you very much for your time.

    Hey erick

    Check out www.mpip.org

    Don't know if there's any info on it or not, but might be worth looking at.

    Best of Luck,
