Re: Recurrence – 18+ spots

      Hi Linda, and thank you.  If you can refer us to someone in Edmonton, and if that is where i can find a melanoma specialist, that would be much appreciated.  My mom is in BC, too.  She has worked with some lovely people, but not a melanoma specialist.  If anyone can share more about treatments that are easier to handle, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks for the kind and helpful words.  

      I don't know if it matters, but the lesions appeared a week ago and have grown from a pinprick to a mole size in that time.  Every day there are more of them.  Today, maybe 5 more than yesterday.
