Hello, I was recently diagnosed with melanoma and the spot is on my lip. I'm about as fair skinned as one can be and covered in freckles. About 5 years ago I lost my father to leukemia . It started as lymphoma and they did the initial biopsy and with in two months the cancer had metastasized to his lungs and stomach. Which leads me to believe the once air hits cancer , it spreads like fire. Some doctors have absolutely agreed that is correct others deny it. He was in remission for about three years then in January of 2011 he thought he he the flu and it turned out to be acute leukemia . Within a month he was gone. I remember looking up the brand of chemo he was given I will go check and repost it here but it said one of the known side effects of this particular chemo was leukemia ! It felt like the doctors who gave him that had murdered him. I felt so wronged and swore to never trust American medicine again. I still don't . What should I do? I'm so scared. I am only 34 and have a six year old little boy who is my whole world. I'm just really really scared

Should I be panicking? Has anyone else seen a jump? I've greatly decreased my iron intake (I'm also supposed to be on low carb so that leaves me next to nothing to eat), so I was hoping for positive...
