      Hello dear friends !!

          It is more then an year since my diagnosys of melanoma stage 1a and one year since my WLE.

         I visited hospital every 3 months for the year .

        My scar on the breast is healed perfectly – even unnoticable but yesterday I noticed raised part on the scar , it feels as a a small lump and was a bit blueish..

        I pressed on it several times ,trying to invistigate that it is and blood appears under the skin ,so now it is blood spot still stays under the skin , and this lump is not bluish any more.

      Hello dear friends !!

          It is more then an year since my diagnosys of melanoma stage 1a and one year since my WLE.

         I visited hospital every 3 months for the year .

        My scar on the breast is healed perfectly – even unnoticable but yesterday I noticed raised part on the scar , it feels as a a small lump and was a bit blueish..

        I pressed on it several times ,trying to invistigate that it is and blood appears under the skin ,so now it is blood spot still stays under the skin , and this lump is not bluish any more.

       Can it be local reccurence ? Is it possible to have some blood clots in the scar after 1 year???

       I made appointment with local dermotologist but still need to wait to see her.

       I would appricate any advice and opinion.

       Thank you very much !!

          I don't have any medical info to give, but just want to say I hope it turns out to be nothing of concern.  Our lesions are very similar in pathology.

                Hi JC!

                          What is your pathology and which treatments  did you have? Are you on follow up now?

                      Hi, very similar to your pathology I think.  Early thin microinvasive, 0.3mm, but I still opted for SLNB (2 nodes under left arm. . the melanoma was on my back) which was negative.  This was almost 2 years ago.  There really isn't any treatment after the WLE/SLNB. . other than skin exams, etc. .   I do get physicals, including bloodwork. . I asked for a chest xray last year which the Dr warned me about. . said they don't normally do that for Stage 1A patients and there can be false positives, etc. . .but I wanted it, and of course there were suspicious spots which led to CT scan to confirm it was granulomas. . .   The mental part of all of this has been the hardest. . just never knowing if the other shoe is going to drop. . . everyone says it's "low risk" but I've heard too many stories of "low risk" that came back later.

                            Yes ,our pathology are very similiar. I had Xray ,Ultasound ,blood work . I never had SLNB , they don't do it for 1A here in UK, just WLE.

                            Every Doc says it is lowest possible risk ,but I am worried. I have never had a day withou thinking about melanoma.

                            I do not have children and Docs say I better never become pregnant ๐Ÿ™

                            Why did you decide to have SLNB ,did you pay for that or they do it for stage 1A?

                            Now I am going to have another Ultrasound ,because my melanoma was on breast and it is difficult to examinate scar ,because breast can be a bit lumpy , soft etc. Plus I have implant inside my breast .

                              I know there is much debate about pregnancy/melanoma. 

                              I decided to have SLNB because I'm male, it was located on trunk. . so those are adverse characteristics. . also, it's just more diagnostic information, I wanted all the information I could possibly have. 

                               

                              I think you used to post about Level II being very low risk. .the Taran/Heenan study, etc. . so hopefully it will prove to be nothing to worry about.

                                        Hi Natasha, the same thing just happened to me-

                                        I'm 7 weeks recovery from a groin lymphedectomy- the inguinal nodes on the left side were all taken – the melanoma was 4.5 cm and pathology couldn't confirm if it was metastacized or the lymph node was completely replaced my melanoma…anyway- 2 days ago I have a raised lump on the end of the incision….thoughts anyone? I have a call in to my oncologist..

                                              Your case is much different from Natasha's.  I'd say you have multiple options to explain your lump and most of those are benign.  Scar tissue, hematoma, seroma, and a stitch reaction all come to mind.  However, melanoma is still an option given your higher risk lesion so the call to the onc is a good choice.

                                                          I would say if you are seeing blood, then it is blood related and not melanoma.  If this were just some type of bruising or blood blister, it should heal and you should see evidence of that.  I doubt if this were melanoma that you'd see changes you relate to something like a bruise/blood blister.  It's times like these that I always think of my derm's "6 week rule".  See if something heals in 6 weeks.  If not, get it seen.  Now while you may not (mentally) be able to wait 6 weeks, the thought still applies.  I try to give something at least 2 weeks to show some signs of healing.  If things continue to look worse daily, I call.  If things show signs of improvement, I hold off.

                                                                     I hope it is blood / scar heailing related.

                                                                    Is scar still heailing and developing changes after 1 year after surgery ?

                                                                    And how local reccurense looks and feels like?

                                                                  Janner

                                                                    I would say if you are seeing blood, then it is blood related and not melanoma.  If this were just some type of bruising or blood blister, it should heal and you should see evidence of that.  I doubt if this were melanoma that you'd see changes you relate to something like a bruise/blood blister.  It's times like these that I always think of my derm's "6 week rule".  See if something heals in 6 weeks.  If not, get it seen.  Now while you may not (mentally) be able to wait 6 weeks, the thought still applies.  I try to give something at least 2 weeks to show some signs of healing.  If things continue to look worse daily, I call.  If things show signs of improvement, I hold off.

                                                                                                  About 3 years ago I had a small mole on the calf. They did the wle, took snb,;all margins and snb were clear so I thought I was out of the wooks. Then about 3 months after that surgery  I noticed what I though as well were blood blisters right on the scar tissue on the calf. There was about 4 or 5 of them and indeed came back mel. I went to a Mel center of excellence where they took about half my calf out (needed a skin graft from right thigh, as well as a complete groin/node resection. 1 node came back positive with micro mets. And then again, about 2 months later, more starting appearting all aroung the divot that was on the calf (all below the original mole). I go to the derm about once a month and they keep slicing and dicing. Now it's getting to hard tell what is a new mel and what is scar tissue. The longest I've gone with no new mels was about 8 months. Had 2 biopsied in Jan – 1 came back positive, the other scar tissue. Go back again in 2 weeks.

                                                                                                  We've been trying something called DPCP which is suppose to kick you immune system into gear and fight this things. Have to apply it to the calf every week. 

                                                                                                  My doc says my case is about a 1 in a 100. 

                                                                                                  Lucky me! But as long as my scans come back clear I'm happy.

                                                                                                  Hope that helps,

It is a lot .Did you have surgery to remove all of it? What was you primary pathology? My derm refused to cut it out and send to pathology ….. I am scared and don't know what to do ..

I had the same thing (on my leg) and have been using DPCP to try and control it, but have had about 30 re-cuurrences right around the original scar line. I pray that it's nothing..

                                                                                                                    Doc thinks if it would be reccurance ,it would go to my armpit , but lympth nodes are fine.

                                                                                                                    I am waiting for my Ultrasound appointment to be sheduled and praying it is nothing but capsule around implant
