      Well Dangnabbit (!!!)

      I had a lump that first appeared in the incision line of my skin graft just before my 1 year appointmentt; Dr. Buzzkill at UAB said it was a cyst.  It disapprared and another (its twin?) appeared in a few months about 1.5 inches away.  Derm sent me for excision; tiny focal point of recurrent melanoma; negative PET/CT and negative wide excision.

      That was in April of 2006. 

      Been doin' fine ever since, so I hope this helps.

      Good luck to you Friend.

      Take good care, K.
