| | Mastocytoma in an adult?
I'm rather concerned....I've had this weird skin patch on my wrist for almost 2 years. I did the usual thing and went to my doctor who gave me topical creams etc but it would return as soon as I stopped using it.
I have now seen a dermatology doctor. He said, "It's not cancer, it's a Mastocytoma". I have been instructed to take antihistamine tablets for four months and then return. If it hasn't gone by then he is going to remove it and look under a microscope. I asked him if he was concerned about it (as I get quite health anxious!)...he said he wasn't concerned.
However....when i look online (big mistake!) there is lots of information saying that a solitary mastocytoma in adults is extremely rare and it has a higher chance of developing into Mastosytosis, which, I know is serious and painful.
So, my question is...is there ANYONE out there who has had just a single mastocytoma as an adult? If so, how long did it take to removed (either by drugs or surgery?).
