My ex (we are still living together) had a skin cancer check the other day. He actually only noticed how different the mole looked a week ago, because it has been hidden under his beard for the last two years or so.
Anyways, he went under the knife the other day and he doctor said that they had to send it to biopsy but that "to be honest, it doesn't look good at all". He received a phone call yesterday and was informed that it is Melanoma. He went in for another consultation with a private skin clinic the same day and is going under the knife again on Wednesday, because it apparently is really urgent and he cannot wait for the public system to see him. He will continue to do other tests and regular check-ups to see if it is spreading.
I was just wondering how many of you have been diagnosed or know someone else with Melanoma. What was the prognosis like?
