@soinlove79:  ((hugs)) I hope it all works out for you. It might end up being just a scare and not be cancerous at all.

I had a lump on my breast around the time that I got engaged and it really bogs you down. Especially waiting for the results (I had to get an MRI). Thankfully, it turned out to be non-cancerous, so I’m hoping the same is true for you. But it’s definitely nerve wracking.

Enjoy your engagement still! Focus on your wedding to try to keep your mind off of it.

Oh my gosh, I hope that it comes back benign. Otherwise, I really hope you caught it early. When you go in for your skin checks do they check that area? If so, maybe it hasn’t been there long and you caught it in time.

I can’t even imagine what you’re feeling. I’m so sorry. I wish you all the luck in the world 🙁

@soinlove79:  Sending you every ounce of positive energy that I have!! I am sure that 7-10 days to wait for results is going to feel like a life time – try to stay busy!

Sending wishes that it’s benign, or in worst case, you caught it early. Either way, I wish you luck!

@soinlove79:  I know this may be different, but I have had some moles removed that turned out to be nothing. My doctors thought it was skin cancer and it wasn’t. I understand you’ve already had cancer so maybe that increases your risk? I’m not sure. Either way, it COULD be nothing and you don’t know until you know. Try and distract yourself as much as possible because you could very well be worrying for nothing.

I wish you all the best!

Sending positive vibes your way! I went through a possible-cancer scare as well so I know that it’s almost impossible to hope for the best when you are preparing yourself for the worst. The wait is the hardest part so surround yourself with the people who love you and try and get your mind off of it.

Stay strong!!

Actually, there have been three new treatment options approved by the FDA over the last two or three years: Yervoy, Zelboraf and Mekinist/Tafinlar. Melanoma has become much more treatable with these. My clinic tested Mekinist/Tafinlar for years (I still think of them as GSK1120212 and GSK2118436 and always have to look up the new brand names, lol) and they were approved for joint use in melanoma in June. We had several stage IV melanoma patients go completely cancer free after two to four 28 day cycles of this MEK/BRAF combo — our patients are all required to have failed whatever the FDA has approved for their cancer before coming to us, and we only treat people who have metastatic melanoma.


Melanoma is no longer a death sentence, if that quells your mind at all.

You are in my thoughts. I hope it comes back benign. Fuck cancer.
