New to this world but here's my background.
August 2018 diagnosed with stage 1 melanoma in upper right arm. WLE was successful and was supposed to have skin and lymph node checks every 3 months for an indeterminate amount of time. I didn't go in December as I should have and they called me last week to remind me. So, I'm going. Biggest fear is having a doctor all up in my 'business' ( I know, I roll my eyes at myself)
Issue: I have a mark on my hand that is right next to an 'age spot' that had developed over the summer. This mark is slightly raised with a bit of a seborrheic keratosis or wart-like appearance. What's concerning is that it is pink, as my melanoma was too, and it is changing. Most of my 'new' marks since diagnosis have almost appeared overnight and not really changes any. This one is different.
Has anyone had melanoma on their hand, the top not the palm, and/or pink melanoma like this?
