Mack, a little unclear from your post. Did they find a mole (ie a primary)? Sounds like you have it in the lymph nodes and they will remove at least the sentinel lymph nodes, maybe more if deemed necessary. Pretty good prognosis if mel is confined to lymph nodes. I didn't have it in the neck, mine were in the arm, so it's probably quite different but the surgery for me was fairly easy. Many people here go to MD Anderson and are quite pleased, I hope you hear from them.
