I would like to share something with everyone. I feel it is important. MELANOMA CANCER: If you know someone who gets Melanoma on the skin beware that when it is removed that there are tiny cells left behind that can't be seen. I had melanoma in May 2014. It was removed. In 2015 I told my doctor that my right arm was still tender and sore. She said it was from the RA. In 2016 I told them I was still having problems, It seemed like ever time I had an infusion I would end up with something in my lungs. I had one in Aug 2016 and 7 months later a new nodule show up in my lung. it was already 1.1 cm. Since January and February. I have had blood work, seeing a hematologist, I have had a Cat scans, Pet Scans, bone marrow, and a lung biopsy. My bone biopsy came back blood disease polyveracythemia and my lung biopsy came back metastatic melanoma in the left lung. I am having one more test to make sure that it hasn't spread to my brain and that is an MRI. If is spreads to the brain nothing can be done. I called The American Cancer Society yesterday. I needed help with understanding this all. This is what I want to share with you so if you have a friend or a love one, or even yourself. If cancer spreads to the brain it is not curable. A person's brain wont take in the medication. Maybe they meant melanoma rather then cancer it's self, The melanoma in your lung is in curable. They can remove it but it keeps coming back because it has spread through the blood stream. They will do surgery to remove it and put you on medication to try and kill the T cells. This medication is to bring up the ammuine system lucky me having RA will fight that to bring down my autoimmune. I will try though. You are on this medication until your body because toxic or it just doesn't work anymore. I want everyone to know that if you get melanoma and you feel something that is not right, tell your doctor, keep telling them. My doctor's made me feel like a hypochondriac . I didn't win by proving they were wrong. It doesn't make me feel any better. I am just sadden they didn't listen in the first place.
