I went into the doc and found out a mole I've had all my life didn't look so good to him.



So he suggested I get it taken off and I did. It was sent in to the lab for testing and it was found to have Melanoma. Now I am scheduled for another surgery to remove more area around where the mole was removed. So I will be heading down to the University of Washington Medical Center Cancer Clinic to have this done and they will decide after that whether I need some kind of dye pumped into my skin to see if anything shows in my glands nearest to where the Melanoma mole was located. After that who knows? Just asking for your prayers in this matter and if any of you have had any past experience w/ Melanoma. Thanks so much.

Not much to tell yet. I get the stitches out from when they took the mole and the outer skin area off this Friday and then I go down to the U.W Cancer Center on Feb. 8 for a consultation w/ a Melanoma specialist and he lets me know what he wants me to do. I know I will have to have a second surgery on where the original mole was around the outer skin area again to make sure there is positively no cancer outside the actual mole further out then they did the first time. That surgery is scheduled for the 9th. What I don't know is whether he will say I need to have skin near the closest gland cut away and dye injected to see if anything shows up there. There was no melanoma found in the first surgery around the mole removal in the outer skin area but there was in the actual mole itself. So I am hoping he will say I don't need the gland thing done and the only melanoma appears to have stayed w/ the mole. Not looking forward to getting cut again just after getting stitches out from the first one in the same spot only a larger cut this time around the area. I am being quite positive and hopeful and not letting this get me down. Whatever God sees fit to do I will live with..........course I'm leaning towards Him letting me live w/o the melanoma ex[happy]

I'll keep praying for you JW. I was at work one day and blood ran down my face from a small mole, I hadn't even touched it. The nurse wanted me to go immediately to have it looked at. They cut it off and it wasn't anything, but it can be scary. Keep us updated.

Thanks again all of you and I hope everyone keeps an eye on any moles they have and check yourself (use a mirror if you have to for area's hard to see or have your spouse check) each year on your B-day for any changes cuz the sooner you find them the better you'll be in the long run ex[nod] I'm fortunate that I went in for some warts on my finger to the dermatologist and he gave me a thorough skin check all over and found that nasty mole on my back cuz eventually it would have spread (hoping it hasn't already but it looks like it might not have so far)

New tool spots skin cancer

British scientists have developed a tool to better identify cancerous moles. The instrument is held directly over the mole. It determines the mole's molecular structure and will know if it's actually melanoma.

Thanks Freddie, I'm on my way this morning to get the stitches out from the first mole excision. Then on the 8th is my consult w/ the specialist. I'm kinda nervous about it all as it gets closer

Scripture tells us not to worry but even King David worried.
Psalm 94:19 When worries threaten to overwhelm me, your soothing touch makes me happy.

Proverbs 12:25 Anxiety in a person’s heart weighs him down, but an encouraging word brings him joy.

Matthew 6:27 And which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? 6:28 Why do you worry about clothing? Think about how the flowers of the field grow; they do not work or spin. 6:29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these! 6:30 And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, won’t he clothe you even more, you people of little faith? 6:31 So then, don’t worry saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 6:32 For the unconverted pursue these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 6:33 But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 6:34 So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything. Instead, in every situation, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, tell your requests to God. 4:7 And the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:6 And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under his mighty hand 5:7 by casting all your cares on him because he cares for you.

Yes Mikey thanks for reminding me and I keep reminding myself that I am not alone in this and God is w/ me through it all no matter what comes of it. "I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me" Philippians 4:13 I will be fine and I am feeling better now that I got my stitches out and I know the U.W is a good place to go to and God will be w/ the doctors who treat me. Thank you for thinking of me

Had my surgery yesterday. The doc did a mapping w/ radioactive dye injected near the spot where the mole was. The dye traveled to 2 lymph nodes right next to each other and they removed those 2. They removed a wider and deeper area of skin around where the old mole was removed. Now the nodes and the skin will be sent in for testing to see if any more melanoma is there. They don't think any will show up so all is looking good so far. I am now radioactive for 3 days and have to carry a little yellow paper if I go anywhere as I could set off alarms on ferries, bridges, airports, border crossings, federal buildings or any law enforcement agents who are carrying a detector on them. I thought of having my DH drive me by the Navy base on the way home just to try it out but he wouldn't go along with it ex[cop] ex[whistle]
