My mother wad told she had stage 4 melanoma in 12/07, She had a node on her neck tested with a needle biopsy. We were told it was lung cancer. She was sent to hospital as an out patient to have it removed for more testing. We were told it was melanoma. She had a ct and a pet scan done and was told it was still in the neck and deep in her chest. They were able to remove both of these nodes on Jan 8,2008. Then in early March the neck node started to grow again. In 1 week it was 5 times as large as it was when she realized it was back again. She had it removed again with larger margins. We did another cat scan and went back yesterday and was told there are spots in both of her lungs. I asked how many and was told a lot. I asked if it was more than 20 and was told yes. There we no spots in late December when she had the 1st cat and pet scan. My fear is this will continue to grow very fast. She doesn't look or act sick. She has lost some weight. Has anyone else out there been through this ? I really need some to talk to .
