Medis, I don’t think there are any guarantees it won’t come back, but the good thing is you caught it before it got any thicker and the SNLB was clear. I am also 1b .88mm so I kinda understand your worry and concern. Just keep up with the skin check ups and the Doctors advice and if your not comfortable with one Doctor then go to another for a second opinion. Catherines advice and suggestions also helped me a lot. Try to stay positive and informed, good luck with everything and remember you’re not alone.
I’m sorry your girlfriend was dx with melanoma. It is good her node biopsy was clear. She should obtain a copy of her path report. Take note of mitotic rate. An aggressive tumor will have a higher mitotic rate, a low mitotic rate, however, is a good indicator. There are no guarantees, but she has better odds that it will not return.
