    Melanoma (NED) and NOW Basil Cell Carcinoma?

    Has anyone else out there had Melanoma and then after NED for 3 1/2 years, come back to get a positive biopsy for Basil Cell Carcinoma?

      I first had Squamous cell on a finger ten years ago that just required minor surgery to take off.
      4 months after I got the NHL they found a tiny melanoma and just cut it out and that was it. SO what can I tell you. I have three different stinking cancers.....like I won the Lottery....lol

      What have I done differently?

      I had a skin cancer which I believe was a gift from living with mold behind the walls of my house which was starving me of oxygen.

      Thankfully, well over a decade later, nada as to do with cancer.

      Im thrilled to report such news. I have done all sorts of "outre" things since the diagnosis. Truthfully, I did not subscribe to a standard American diet ever in my life.

      We need ckean air to breathe. I am convinced we also need clean food and water. Since adulthood, I have always eaten freshly sprouted food as well as the least sprayed produce available. I was also, until the sick, very very active.

      Not the same type of cancers, but...I was NED from Hodgkins disease for 18 years only to have a squamous cell carcinoma pop up in my right tonsil. We never know.

      I had a nasty melanoma as a young woman, then recently ...... I had 2 basal cell carcinomas on my face which required Moh's surgery, then.... I had 3 more basal cell carcinomas on my legs, but, right now, at this very minute..... I have a very deep basal cell on the same site as one of the earlier carcinomas! I have yet another Moh's surgery scheduled in 2 weeks for that baby!
      I have medium color complected skin which does not burn, so go figure.
