I recently had my 2nd melanoma removed. The first was in 2009 on my left shoulder, the 2nd on my lower left leg. After wide exsision, SLN & margins were clear. My official diagnosis statis is “Stage 1b” (T2a NO MO)
My LDH level was 219 with the standard range of 125 – 250 U/L. Since this is on the high side of the range, I am a little concerned. I have not had any CT/MRI or PET scans done to date.
Mine was 216, I was concerned too. But I think Catherine said it’s only of concern for those being treated for Stage 4. There is lots of disagreement about its relevance. Also, some things, such as aspirin, can raise LDH.
