Update: Caught a fast changing character before 1mm!

Forums Cutaneous Melanoma Community Update: Caught a fast changing character before 1mm!

  • Post

      I had a 3 month wait but finally the appointment came round. Punch biopsy came back as 0.9mm Breslow Clark's 3 looking like a nodular melanoma. WLE and SLNB to follow. The location is behind my knee and well vigilance works!

      I had taken a photo a year ago of a new mole that didn't look classically malignant but was starting the change. To me on the photo on the day of the appointment it looks nodular.

      Not too worried, more kinda at peace and assurred in my checking routine. Got it taken care of pre 1mm! Woooho!
