View Full Version : Melonoma - both nipples turning brown...

Hi everyone...

I was diagnosed with Malignant melanoma 6 months ago.

Short version - I had a melanoma tumor removed from my stomach area (just under the skin) in September of '04.

I'm now on Alpha-Interferron by injection 3 times a week for a year.

I just noticed, last week that my nipples are turning brown. They have always been "skin color", but now I see this as a problem.

I have an appointment with my Oncologist next Monday.

Is this more melanoma? Is it a result of the Interferron? It's making me nervious.

(P.S. - I'm a 54 year-old male. I've been in the sun all my life unprotected. I have fair/freckled skin, blond hair.)....

(P.P.S. - My nipples have always been sensitive to the touch)...

Thank you. Bill L.
