Melanoma Tumor Removed from Sandy’s Sinus

Today Sandy went to her follow-up appointment with the ENT doctor.

His news was not good. The mass he removed from Sandy's sinus was malignant. We were stunned. He said it was melanoma, which is very rare in mucous membranes.

So, he gave her a prescription for a full body scan, which is to try to detect if she has melanoma anywhere else in her body (her appointment for that is next Thursday, January 23rd). Then he will see her again to discuss the results of the scan and refer her to an oncologist.

He told us the oncologist would either just watch her to see if anything else shows up or she could be scheduled for chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
