Hi! I have been on this board and website in the past when I was going through my treatment, and I am finally ready to join as it was IMMENSELY helpful for me :)
If you read my information on my page, it'll give all the details of my hx and dx and whatnot, but I had Stage IIIA melanoma a few years ago and went through Interferon and whatnot (I am 24 now, so about 20/21 when I went through treatment, etc.).
I was just wanting to reach out to see if anyone has had the (unfortunate) experience of acquiring a secondary cancer of Lymphoma post melanoma and treatment? I have had a node in the right side of my neck (I think one of the jugulodigastric nodes) that has been swollen for months and months and I am finally going in January early (new job = new insurance effective Jan. 1, so had to wait) for a CT scan per my oncologist after I explained my issues. I have been extremely fatigued, no other symptoms of cold (aside from fatigue), some night sweats which is super abnormal for me, and the lymph node has grown and is immovable and painless. Obviously I am sure you can all understand my concern even if it is just an infection! But just wanted to see if anyone has any insight or experience on secondary cancers, specifically Lymphoma, after having melanoma.
Any insight is greatly appreciated!!
