    Question Does anyone have info on Melanoma spread?

    6 years ago I had a melanoma taken from my side. Nine months later it had spread to my lymph nodes under my arm. 24 nodes were removed-5 had melanoma. I took Interferon for 1 year.

    2 months ago I began to have a pain in my ankle. Xrays show a large dark area in the bone. My feeling is it is back but I can't get into the Doctor until Monday for results.

    I'm looking for information on melanoma spreading to the bones and the survival possibilities if that is the case.

    Thank you.

    Cool

    Hi Mooz
    I'm sorry that I don't have any info to help answer your questions. I just wanted to give you my best wishes & hope so much that your results will have a positive outcome. I guess being realistic, it's possible that it has spread to your bone. If that's the case I'm sure there will be good treatment available for you.

    Good luck & I'll be thinking of you.

    Cool

    Hi Mooz
    I had a melanoma removed 5 years ago. I also had lymph nodes removed. I can relate to what's happening to you.

    Please post on Monday after you get your results & let me know the outcome. Like I said I'll be thinking of you. Unfortunately I don't have a God but maybe those who do will send up a wee prayer for you. Above all stay positive. Sending you heaps of positive thoughts.
    Lidia
