      Hi

      I don't post often but read these boards daily. As a recap, my son Ben was dx with MM in June 2009, right before his 21st birthday. It was very rare oral melanoma (tongue) that had spread to one lymph node. 2 surgeries and one year of interferon.

      Hi

      I don't post often but read these boards daily. As a recap, my son Ben was dx with MM in June 2009, right before his 21st birthday. It was very rare oral melanoma (tongue) that had spread to one lymph node. 2 surgeries and one year of interferon.

      He had been getting scans every 6 month and was due for one in january. But he was planning a 3 month trip to Europe ( your typical euro-rail pass-backpack-youth hostel trip with a buddy) and I think he was afraid they would find something on the scan and he wouldn't be able to go, so he asked the doctor to put it off till he got back. So, my scanxiety was even higher since it had been almost  year since his last one.

      Just got the rresults, still NED..feeling very blessed!

      Keep fighting everyone

                      Great news!  My husband was diagnosed in late July 2009 and he is also NED (stage 3a)…I hope we get the same amazing news when he gets his scans next month.
