I posted about a week ago explaining my current situation involving my fiance's melanoma diagnosis. Basically he was diagnosed with a very thin (but large) melanoma on his left jawline back in April. After the WLE, we found out the melanoma was thicker than they thought at the deepest point (1.2mm). So now we are waiting to be seen by an oncologist to decide if we will proceed with a lymph node biopsy as his first surgeon did not think it was necessary, but his dermatologist would like to get one done. We should be seeing the new ongologist/surgeon in the next two weeks.
The other day, I noticed a very small lump on my fiance's collar bone. The lump was on the right side right where that 'U' shaped dip is underneath his neck. It is very small, smallar than a pea but I did notice it. When I felt it, it felt hard. I don't ever remember seeing it there before but my fiance said that it's just his bone... I don't agree with him, I can feel and see this is a small lump. He has also had a cough for the last three weeks that is left over from a cold he had before.. maybe it's something from that?
My question is, should I be worried about this? Ever since I saw it, my anxiety has gone through the roof but I don't know if it's just me being paranoid or is this is something that should be taken seriously? I feel like it doesn't make sense, as his melanoma was on the left side of his face and this lump is on the right side of his collarbone. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thank you.
Also, can anyone give me advice on how to calm my anxiety through all this? I am having a very hard time with it and I have never suffered from anxiety before all this.
Thank you so much.
