Just diagnosed as shown above with a mitotic rate of 10 per sq ml. Since I have no idea what this means I am very concerned. Can anyone help with this?
On the left side of the page you will see a line that says "Learn more." if you click on it, lots of good info. Here is the part that explains your path report:
The link below was sent to me shortly after being diagnosed. It is also good info when you're just beginning to learn about this disease. I will also warn you not to just do a google search for melanoma and read all the links you'll find. It'll scare the heck out of you and for now you just need to get a basic understanding of what is happening. You're also in a great place here to ask questions and get feedback from people with a lot of real world experience and knowledge of this disease. Good luck to you and feel free to ask any other questions.
(1 Peter 5:7 NLT). Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you
