MELANOMA INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
July 15, 2012

I was diagnosed with Clark level III/IV in 2006 depth .43...so I guess u could say I'm one of the lucky ones I've been told. I've had 3 PetCt since some showed hot spots in my jaw/juggler /and cortid but have all subsided on there own, except the one on my parotid still remains at 2.9. My oncologist seems to feel as long as it dose t act up its best to leave well enough alone. I did not do Chemo nor did I have my nodes cked due to I was old about elephantiasis. The melanoma was taken from my left inner thigh. After several months of complaints of left groin pain. Ultra sound of left groion showed mild inflammation in a fewnode but nothing to be ''concerned'' about. So here I am, waiting on the as we all know 7-10yr recurrance issue. Somewhat scary if ask me since I haven't been scanned in 4 yrs now. I do go for my regular screenings and I'm on number 17 for Basel Cell Carcinomas. Tell me am I just being parinoid about thinking it might be time for another PetScan...???
