Re: Shave biopsy, are they bad for predicting breslow depth? Does this affect staging

I think you've been worrying yourself into a frenzy!

Just to be clear: as far as most biopsies go, most are benign. They may come back slightly irregular, but really nothing to worry about. It's...

Re: new member

I cannot give you any information on experiences of a liver transplant; however, my husband had liver cancer and passed away on 4/27/2012. If a transplant is an option for you, embrace it. I can...

Re: Liver Cancer

When my late husband was battling liver cancer, he began bloating up severely. It put pressure on his diaphram to where he had difficulty speaking, put pressure on his lungs so he had difficulty...

Re: Understanding pathology results - Melanoma

Hello and welcome!

It's been a couple of weeks, so I do hope you receive this. The doctors will be able to know more about your wife's melanoma after her wide excision, but with the information...

Re: endstage liver disease

So sorry to hear about what you are going through. My late husband contracted Hep C - never sure where - way back, had been told he had it but was never monitored as he should have been. Neither of...

Re: scrapping or cutting

I think my gut reaction would be to have it cut out. But then, I had melanoma and I just wanted the best possible approach to getting that out of me!

Scrapping, which is done for Basal and...

Re: Mohs on the forehead

Do you mean "change your facial expressions? Or do you mean if you will have facial scarring or disfigurement? If you are having MOHS surgery, the possibility of disfigurement and scarring is...

Re: scar on face?... scared whats happening :'(

When a mole is removed from the face, not much is taken. It is usually a punch, and there might be one or two stitches involved. When all heals up, you will barely know where the mole was. Now, if it...

Re: Can this be skin cancer?

I would really doubt that it's skin cancer. Stress or trauma can bring about a lot of changes to the body, both internally and externally. If it were skin cancer and it developed that quickly, 10...

Re: Amelanotic Melanoma

I'm happy to hear it sounds as if your cancer was caught in time. I had a melanoma in 2007 - just past 5 years a few days ago! - and I was staged at IB. Melanoma in situ is a very good diagnosis - it...

Re: 70 new moles - what is causing it?

Hello and welcome!

First off, I'm curious as to why you believe you are at high risk for melanoma? I'm asking this because you describe yourself as very dark skinned. Typically, the darker the...

Re: Severe atypia...melanoma.

Hello! I certainly know how that one word - "melanoma" - can alter one's whole life. I was told I had malignant melanoma in February 2007, and the idea of being "afraid of one's skin" is a perfect...

Re: Melanoma


Thank you for your kind words, but as I'm sure you are well aware, once you or some one you love has been smitten with the big "C," knowledge becomes a matter of self-preservation.

Re: Help figuring this out

There are normally two ways of taking a biopsy from a mole: punch and shave. Punch is the better option. A shave biopsy is done exactly as it sounds: the doctor shaves off the top layer of the mole....

Re: Fiances 'gaming' personality
