In Response to Re: MORE MEDICAL PROBLEMS TO DEAL with!!!!!!!!!!!!:
Another problem. I found out a week ago that I have a malignant Melanoma on my forehead. I have already been to a plastic surgeon, and a general surgeon that specializes in head and neck cancers. Next week I go to an oncologist. Hopefully everyone will get on the same page and get this thing off!! They won't know until they get in there how far it has spread. It may mean the removal of lymph glands around my ear, and/ or on my neck. They have to do a radio active isotope to see where it has gone. I asked my plastic surgeon if I would scare small children when he got finished. He said he was very good at making it look good. I think I can always get my hair dresser to cut my bangs longer!!!

Barbara, the Melanoma my husband had was on his forehead. The Dr that removed it did a great job placing the incision within a crease in his forehead. I sort of joked that it was a mini face lift for him. The Dr that did it was a dermatologist, I think if it had been on me I probably would have gone with a cosmetic surgeon but I think that is just because I would want to avoid a scar on my face whereas my husband always wears a hat and the scar is pretty much covered by the band on the hat. (sort of makes me wonder how he got the melanoma to begin with but that's another thing)
I wish you the best.....
