  • The Results
  • You have Stage I melanoma. You will need surgery to remove the cancer as well as the removal of normal skin around the tumor to ensure that we have caught it all.
  • Because of the size of the tumor, we will also do a lymph node biopsy to determine if the cancer has spread to your lymph nodes, and may have to remove the lymph nodes near the cancer.
  • We will be scheduling this surgery as quickly as possible. You're very young, and your cancer was caught early enough where you have an excellent prognosis of full recovery.
  • It is very likely that this deadly form of skin cancer was caused by even one serious sunburn as a child, or if you are tanning your skin either by being unprotected in the sun or visiting indoor tanning beds.
  • You must never again be unprotected in the sun. Choose shade wherever possible, wear a minimum of SPF 30, 12 months per year, and cover your skin with clothing
  • My surgery was successful and fortunately the biopsy of my lymph nodes was negative. I now have regular visits to the Dermatologist, and have had a few other cancer spots removed that were diagnosed as basal cell carcinoma.
  • I thought having a tan made me look healthy, but what I've learned is that is the complete opposite. Tanning almost took my life, and I will forever be in fear that I may discover another melanoma because I have damaged my skin by years of tanning.
