Has anyone been upgraded following WLE

Just wondered if anyone following the WLE was increased in staging?

  • Hi

    I didn't personally have my staging increased after my WLE but I'm guessing that, as you say in your profile that you had your WLE on 24th May, you're naturally anxious about your results. 

    Staging can alter for a number of reasons including if cancer cells are found in the sentinel lymph node when that biopsy is done at the same time as the WLE. You haven't mentioned having a SLNB at the same time as your WLE though.

    You'll be well looked after with three monthly checks, for probably 5 years, so try not to worry about your staging increasing.

    Do pop back and let us know how it goes when you get your results
