don't worry it is probably just benign, the doctor will probably tell you not to worry about it anyways.
I've had this spot on my chest for about a month now,its been getting larger what do you think it is?
okay that's fine....
i'm going to order a biopsy, but don't worry this is just a precaution
The results are back in. I'm sorry, you have a tumor. You have malignant melanoma its a form of skin cancer.
two weeks later
so, whats the issue
What am i going to do?
So basically to break all of this down, malignant melanoma is when pigment producing cells called melanocytes do not produce melanin that pigments the skin. The stages of malignant cancer is first a tumor, then nodes and after that it turns to metastasis. For a tumor you would just need to get it surgically removed. For nodes which means it has made it to your blood stream, you would need to get radiation or chemotherapy. Metastasis is when it has spread to your tissues, and you would need radiation or chemotherapy as well. As of right now you just have a tumor so you would need to have a surgery done to get rid of it.
