  • Hi Gemma, I was told I had Gorlin's Syndrome back in 1996/1997, I was in my 23/24 years of age then and had under gone a large operation on my jaw to remove a lot of jaw lumps. I have had melanoma removed from under my left arm, 3 lots of melanoma removed from the back of my left shoulder. My last operation the plastic surgeon took out twenty BBC'S on my face and arms and legs. This latest surgery back in April this year has left me with one large scar on one side of my face and a N shaped scar by my ear on the other. I have been told I need more surgery again. What keeps me going is thinking positive, it is hard to find someone to talk to who understands what your going through but I,m here if you what to talk anytime ok.
