    will radiation do any good?

    Decision Point

    I have mucosal melanoma 1% of known cancers There are so few cases there is no known protocol for treatment, and no % of how radiation can help.

    Misdiagnosed

    Oh No

    I went to Dr. growth on my tongue. he said see you in two months. it grew from size of dime to large popped popcorn. had it biopsied. side not cancer. FINALLY removed - whoops melanoma. Back to surgery two more times. Type of cancer so unusual there is no staging, no protocal, only death in 2 to 5 years.
