New Melanoma diagnosis: next test to see if spread to lymph nodes
I just was told yesterday that my biopsy showed that I have stage 2B melanoma on my scalp. I will be calling today to set up an appointment at Moffitt Cancer center in Tampa (which is only about 45 minutes from me).
I was told that they will do a "dye" test (?) that will attempt to determine if it has moved into my lymph nodes or not. The biopsy showed (somehow) that the cells were actively dividing, thus indicating some urgency. If it has not, the site will be excised and some type of followups will be ordered. Not clear yet exactly, as all is a little hard to absorb.
I appreciate these forums and the people who share their stories!
