I had 4th stage melanoma and was told I had about 5 y.
ears to live. That was 15 years ago. At the time they only had one chemo available and it usually didn't work. I was very LUCKY! Please stay out of the sun and check check check your skin!

I reguarly go to the dermatologist yearly. My mother died in 1980 from melanoma at the age of 47 from a mole on her fore arm that was there from birth but after accidently scraping it on a card board box it became active and had spread. By the time she went to the doctor she was in stage 3 and lived a little over 2 yrs in much pain and distress. Then tragicaly my best friend whom was my sister-inlaw was diagnosed with melanoma from a mole on her back that she could not see or feel in 1982....

She passed away Christmas eve day 1984 at the age of 31. In the past 30 years the technology and treatments have improved significantly and skin cancer awareness is a life saver.

My grandmother died from melonoma cancer and my aunt has had several melonoma spots removed and I have had squimacell removed from my face so I take skin cancer seriously and religiously check my body. I also go to a dermatologist and let him check also.

Rachel I am so glad that everything worked out for you. I know that cancer is not one of the things that we need to hear. But I am so glad for you.

last year I was diagnosed with skin melanoma on my arm. After successful surgery I have learned to be moe aware and check regularly for irregular marked, bumps, etc. Fortunately I am in remission, take the time to.
get checked and check yourself regularly.

/Thankyou for the information. I have a discoloration above my left cheek bone. I did have it treated a few years ago only to find out it was an age spot, which ws removed but comes back in the spring when I use self tanning lotion and then goes away in the fall when I no longer use the lotion. I pledge to report any new spots to my Dr right away. I go in every six months for a check up. I am 75 years old so anything strange on my skin gets reported...Thankyou for sharing your story.

I have been ucky enough to never know anyone with this and I pray it stays that way and I hope you stay in remission and my prayers are with anyone that ever goes through what you have.
