Re: multiple nodes involved, can I survive??

Forums General Melanoma Community multiple nodes involved, can I survive?? Re: multiple nodes involved, can I survive??


      Might I suggest a PET/CT scan ? They are available in TO. Ontario lags far behind in Melanoma treatment, and my suggestions to you would be to call Dr.Micheal Smylie at the Cross Cancer centre in Edmonton. I believe him to be the foremost Melanoma specialist in Canada. At least talk to his office and see about a second opinion…Many Canadian patients on MPIP have either seen or talked to Dr.Smylie, he is remarkable..good luck and let us know what you decide.

      You have lots of options and most importantly many reasons to be very hopeful.
