Oh No Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on October 31, 2011 View this journey (3 Experiences)

Had a large mole on back that started itching. My husband has had 30+ non-melanoma skin cancers taken off (Mohs Surgery) and I had never been to a dermatologist or had a skin check so told him it was probably time to have one. I did go to have the itchy mole checked. Found out it was of no concern but dermatologist found a mole on my outer right calf that she did not like so took it off for biopsy. Got a call a few weeks later while working to come in and speak to the doctor about the results. I asked to wait till next day off and they kept pressuring me to come in that day. I did go and was told it came back as melanoma in situ and the margins were not clear so would need a WLE. Referred to oncology surgeon specializing in melanoma
