Hello,

I had a dime sized superficial melanoma removed from my right buttock.  I remember the doctor saying it was .48 and we caught it very quick.  It was pink in color and she said it's good I came in right away because those tend to be more aggressive.

They did a wide excision of tissue, got 10 stitches which will get removed 8/2/2013. 

Just saying hello to the community and wish everyone the best!

Glad they caught it quick, especially since at least from the picture it didn't look like anything suspicious

Yeah, it just didn't go away, that was my main reason for going in.  I think it probably would have gotten redder and more scaly eventually, but yeah it didn't look like much.

Thanks,

Matt

They caught it very early:-) Good job being aware!
