    Simple removal surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    Had a new growth on my left lower leg that was removed and biopsied and found to be of a negative result! Have had 3 node removals since original postive cancer diangnosis and all 3 have come back negative! Hoping that we had caught it in time that it now has been removed! Still scary though, the deepth of the original cancers growth......I mean, I am completely happy that mine is under control for the moment.....but melanoma has such the history of returning.....its a daily struggle not to think about it!
