but my husband has had a very suspicious mole removed from his face. I've noticed this for probably 4 or 5 months and just now got him to go for it to be checked out.
About 15 years ago he had a melanoma on his back removed and has has no problems until last year when I noticed a very small dark mole on the back of his knee. It was a melanoma and he had it removed. Both times we were told that this had not spread and in the case of the one on his back we were told that it was one of the "thinnest" the doctor has seen.
The doctor today took a look at the mole and said that it looked suspicious so now the wait. Has anyone out there had multiple melanomas and had things turn out okay? I'm really worried about him and he seems so very calm.

Well I have not had multiple primaries. But I do know people who have. My aunt has had multiple primaries and she is doing great! The first one was at least 25-30 yrs ago and that was when treatment was not as advanced as it is now. She is healthy and fine.
I wish you and your husband the best. Let us know how things go.
