How the sun sees you

This is a very powerful message about the importance of sunscreen and how damaging the sun really is.  You will be blown away!!!

Thank you for charing your story.

I was wondering if you know why your stage 1 melanoma spread? They normally doesn't or are at a very low risk of spreading. If you got clean margins, would this not give you better prognosis?

I have also been diagnosed with MM and I'm worried.

Do you know if anyone with in situ MM have had metastases?

You are in my prayers!

Thank you. To answer your question, I don't have the answer to why my melanoma spread or how I could've gotten a different outcome (meaning, no recurrence). I can tell you, however, that it isn't common for a Stage 0 or 1 to have a recurrence. My doctor told me I had a 10% chance of recurrence. With that said though, I have known a few people like myself that recurred. Who knows what set it off and honestly, I don't think I could've changed anything in the past. I would tell you though, that if you're concerned, get a second opinion on your pathology report.

And no I don't know anyone that had melanoma in situ that had a metastases. Hopefully, that eases your min. ;)
