Hi all,

I was directed here from another group :)

Yesterday my dad had a biopsy done (Tuesday I'm in Australia). 

He has what his doctor believes is a melanoma from what I can gather closer to 1cm in length to 5mm in with minimum. unfortunately it's somehow been unnoticed until my mum recently picked it up, it is ulcerated badly and causing a crater in his ear. The doctor has advised at the minimum he will lose his ear but the appropriate course of action I assume won't be determined until he receives results?

I'm just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation with how this sounds and what your outcome was and treatment? I'm new to this, I have no idea on how quickly this could all develop or not.
