Terrified- Possible Nodular Melanoma
I have a BCC removed from my upper back last year and have been very vigilant since then. Soon after, I got pregnant and recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. About a year ago, I noticed a a small clear bump on my back, but with all of the other dark moles on my body, I blew that one off. Just this past week, I noticed that it seemed to have gotten bigger (by my touch, its placement kept me from seeing it clearly). So I went in and they removed it for biopsy on Friday....and now, I wait. I originally though it was another basal cell, but now Im reading that it could be a non pigmented nodular melanoma and Im starting to panic. Being the nodular variety, I know it spreads fast and it has been there for at least year I think. Now Im self diagnosising (I have a sore back and have had a lingering cough for a few months, so Im thinking it is in the nodes). Im so scared, I dont want to leave behind my little one so young =( I dont know how Im going to make it til Friday.
Enjoying every second with our little love, Taylor Peyton!!
