      Looks like I’m joining this club and I’m certainly a bit unsure of the future. I had a suspicious mole my wife told me about, it took months to get an appointment with a dermatologist but it’s come back as melanoma. It’s .95mm breslow depth and now I’m waiting for my first consult with an oncologist. Currently I’m staged at T1b. I managed to get an appointment at Duke November 27th. Needless to say after using Google (which I’m not doing anymore) I was convinced I’ll be gone in 12 months. I found this forum and read through so many posts and it’s really improved my stress. I wanted to say thank you for all that post and support. I will update my journey on this forum. Hoping for negative in my lymph nodes of course but we will see. So happy my wife spotted this as it’s in a place I would never see.
