Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on June 27, 2014 View this journey (3 Experiences)

I have only had one round of Yervoy at this point so I don't have too much to say about the drug and/or the reactions at this time. I did not have enough melanoma in my body at this time to participate in a PD1 clinical trial. There is too much inflammation from the surgery to know how much cancer is in my hip area and I have a spot on my rib, which at this time is .8 mm. It has grown .2 mm since my scan in April.

    That's actually good news. I start PD1 Monday after four rounds of Yervoy. Hope it works better than the Yervoy.
