Anyone out there with Spitzoid Lesions/Spitz Nevus?
Good morning everyone (or afternoon wherever you may be),
I am trying to connect with others in regard to a diagnosis of Spitzoid lesions/Spitz Nevus. I have read several articles online, and I was at the point that I believed everything to be 'OK', but I am starting to worry if this diagnosis would be a lifetime occurrence or not. I am in my late twenties and was diagnosed about four years ago, had about nine removed (all labeled as benign). There is much controversy over the risk of these lesions (some physicians exercising more caution, others exercising less). These affect only 1% of skin cancer patients total (unless this number has risen). I hope to hear from someone and know I am not alone. I have come close to scheduling an appointment at the Mayo Clinic, but I am not sure if it is totally necessary or not.
