I got results of ct scans today. “findings are in keeping with likely recurrent disease and metastatic disease”. I have multiple palpable lymph nodes on or near my scar from neck dissection done in Oct 2018. They are very small. Also, “ soft tissue nodule 3mm overlying right sternocleidomastoid concerning for disease recurrence”. A needle biopsy is being scheduled for me soon. I was diagnosed stage 3c when i first had the melanoma in my lymph nodes . waiting for results of these tests is agonizing!
Does anyone know what stage I will be if the biopsy is positive?
Has anyone experienced similar progression near their surgery scar?
I’m trying to stay positive and praying for you all!
