I went to the dermatologist today and they told me I have melanoma. I'm seeing a surgeon later today and have a call in to my OB

How scary for you and your family! Hopefully everything is ok and you caught it early. Both my FIL and BIL had it and after having the moles removed, everything was fine. You'll be in my prayers!

I'm sorry to hear that. :( I'm sure once you talk to the surgeon and your OB, you'll get a lot of answers. Best of luck to you and keep us posted. We'll be thinking of you.

I have surgery next Fri. They are going to try to do it with only local. The cancer is very small and normally they would put a radioactive dye under the skin but they will not do that unless when they get in it is bigger than expected.
