      I’ve recently just been diagnosed with melanoma I’m 25 years old with two small children and obviously petrified, the melanoma was on my forehead and has now been removed. Once the mole was removed the margins were clear of cancer cells around the mole I have been told and my barthow depth was 1.2mm but could be less they said.

      But they’ve said they still have to do a wide local excision on my forehead and remove my sentinental nodes for a biopsy.

      I’m obviously very stressed and scared.
      Would u say this sounds like my overall outcome could be ok?

      Thank you!


        Hi Sophie, there’s a Facebook group “Melanoma Support New Zealand” I’ve found very helpful and informative, people with all levels of experience are willing to listen, offer advice and support.
        Regards, Glenn.
