I have had good screening for years and yesterday was diaganosed with a 7 millimeter non pigmented melanoma on my back shoulder.
I live in the boonies near Eureka Cal. I am wondering if good local surgeon will be as good as driving to SanFrancisco's UCSF Melanoma center as far as removal. I think lymph testing will occur as well.
My local Dermo wants it both done very soon locally. The UCSF clinic may take a few weeks to schedule. Any feeling on whats best-stay local and its done in a few days or travel (which I have no issues with) and get it done by experts in the field but will take longer.
