Oh No (Diagnosed): I discovered a lump at my right axillary (armpit). A surgeon who had removed a fatty cyst saw it and told me he would examine it at a later date. Since he didn't seem serious about the lump, neither was I. I thought it was another fatty cyst. I did nothing for 11 months. Then the area started to ache. An ultra sound revealed something suspicious. I then had a fine needle biopsy which was positive for melanoma.
