      Well, yesterday I had my meeting with the onc to go over the CT scan, and although they saw something in the lungs which might be a future concern, they didn’t see anything that looked like melanoma to them, so I considered that mostly good news. Monday, when I had my CT scan, I also visited the dermatologist, because there was one mole that I noticed recently which reminded me of the one which turned out to be melanoma. While I was there, I asked him to check out two others, which looked suspicious to me. Just got the results back and they are all melanoma. Report said that they could be spontaneous, but given the past history, it was more likely that they are spread of the original (original was in middle of the back; new ones are on shoulder, butt, and chest near nipple), which would make me stage 4 now. Shoot.
