    Hi,

    I have diagnosed with Melanoma stage 3 in 2007. My primary mole was on my left knee, I had micro metastases  in my left groin, all was taken away and I was doing great. Got Interferon and remained clean.

    Hi,

    I have diagnosed with Melanoma stage 3 in 2007. My primary mole was on my left knee, I had micro metastases  in my left groin, all was taken away and I was doing great. Got Interferon and remained clean.

    This morning I got scared after I saw what looks like a bloodblister on my right top shoulder with a very very tiny blood blister righ next to it. The bigger "blister" has a dark round circle around it. It is not itching and I know that I will see my primary doc tomorrow and ask him to take a look at it, or even better to cut it out.

    In mean time, could this Melanoma be back, does it happen like this???? OMG I am so scared right now I can't even think straight….my little ones and husband….I do not want to tell them that its back!!

      The right shoulder is a LONG way away from the left knee.  I'd say it's a ton more likely to be ANYTHING other than melanoma.  Could it be melanoma?  Yes.  Is it likely?  No.  Blood blister, hematoma, hemangioma – lots of blood related things that aren't melanoma.

      Hang in there and don't jump to any conclusions yet.
