I’m a 43 year old mother of five – ranging from 21-2yrs 8months.
My Melanoma was biopsied 2 and a half weeks ago. Depth of 1.6mm, low mitotic rate <1. What's really worrying me is that the tumour was not completely excised. Does the SLNB procedure which is scheduled for Monday (29th) increase the chance of 'seeding' melanoma in an incompletely biopsied tumour????
Grew up in sunny Australia, have protected my skin all my adult life but was pretty much unprotected as a child.
