I am 3 years out from 3a diagnosis and have had nasal congestion for over 8 weeks. I originally dismissed to persistent head cold and finally went to GP last week. I am on a steriod that has reduced the congestion but the sense of smell has yet to return.
I have googled and have found limited if any relevant information related to melanoma and my symptoms. Though I am under the care of an ENT I don’t want to waste his time for a possible sinus infection.
Has anyone had any experience with my symptoms being related to a recurrence?

Take care

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.

I should have added my primary was scalp.

Not to scare you but my mom had lost her sense if smell a year before she was diagnosed at stage 3 . Doctors were never able to find the possible cause of loss of smell and then she was diagnosed with melanoma. We didnt even knew what melanoma means back then.
