On 5/21/15 I was diagnosed with two primary melanomas. One on my back, (left thoracic, Breslows 0.4 mm,) and another on my right posterier arm, Breslows 4.5 mm. I had a WES and SNB on July 1st, 2015. No lymph involvement And although this all seemed to turned my life upside down, and I am happy to report that my scans, which are done every three- six months, have been clear. Stage 2B.
