My husband was just diagnosed with stage 4 mucosal melanoma in my maxillary. On Aug 22 2014 he had surgery for what we thought was just a sinus infection but turned out to be stage 4 mucosal melanoma. His ENT said he removed as much of the mass as possible and referred us to an oncologist. We seen the oncologist today, who basically said, there is nothing I can do for him. He is now referring him to UCLA to see if there is something that can be done for him there. He had an MRI and it did not show that it has spread. I feel so helpless at this point. I am feeling like he has been given a death sentence. Are there any stage 4 mucosal melanoma cancer survivors?
