New and recently diagnosed with melanoma

  • Hi I have just found out I have stage 1 melanoma, I'm 21 and having a sentinel lymph node biopsy in the next 2 weeks. just looking for some comfort and advice on what to expect for anyone in the same situation. Reading some if your posts have already helped put my mind at ease. I've also just asked to join the Facebook group, but not been accepted yet. Thanks
