My 14 year old son had a growth near his anus that appeared to be a wart. A biopsy revealed that it is melanoma – 9/1/10.
Surgery to remove “wart” and three other growths. 10/7/10
He is extremely athletic and looks, acts and feels the same as always.
Started Interferon in December 2010, handling it extremely well.
Turned 15 years old in February, 2011. 🙂
CT/PET clear 3/11 – NED
CT/PET clear 6/11 – NED
Six months of Interferon complete, 6/11
Stopped Interferon 6/11 (6 months) due to side effects and decision to live life and not suffer from medication.
Next scans: Sept. 2011
