I recently had my 2nd melanoma removed. The first was in 2009 on my left shoulder, the 2nd on my lower left leg. After wide exsision, SLN & margins were clear. My official diagnosis statis is "Stage 1B (T2a NO MO)
I wanted to find out what the standard protocol is for both imaging tests (PET, etc.) as well as treatment protocols others are using.
I fully appreciate that, at this point, I am considered early stage...and I am profoundly thankful for that. But given that I have now had "2" primaries, I would sleep better if I were given a PET scan or something to put my mind at ease!
