Finally bucked up the courage to go to the doctors last Thursday, and have been referred under the 2 week system to see a Dermotologist this Thursday.
I understand they will investigate, and potentially conduct a biopsy.
I have done some research and can't get my head around the general treatment. I am assuming after surgery (if required), the body is then clear and you are classed as melanoma free? Some websites state a survival rate of 5 years which has its obvious concerns.
Some guidance from someone who has been through a similar situation would help, I like to have an understanding prior to appointments so I dont get too overwhelmed.
In addition I know i can follow this through the private healthcare route, but would assume the NHS is just as quick in these situations?
Thank you in advance.
