Hello all, I haven’t been here in a while. Was diagnosed back in 2004 stage 1a .22mm superficial spreading melanoma. I’ve had regular skin checks and things removed, but nothing significant so I’ve been off living my life and not worrying too much about melanoma. Until now.
Long story short, I noticed a hard bump close to my ankle the other day. Looked tiny, but firm pinkish. Of course I start trying to pop it. It starts to bleed because I pick at it shouldn’t have done that I know. Put a Band-Aid on it and two weeks later, I’ve been putting in an Anabiotic’s on it and it’s healed but now it looks like a mosquito bite. No pain but firm and of course I Google it and it comes back to all these nodule melanomas sites. Now I’m starting to get scared again. I have an appointment to see the dermatologist next month. But my question is, is it rare to be diagnosed with two different subtypes of melanoma?
