melanoma was discovered 3 months ago. since then DCIS of the left breast, dominant thyroid nodule and other multiple thyroid nodules another site on the left breast and a suspicous leision on the upper right lobe of the liver have been discovered. All thyroid lab tests are normal, liver site cannot be biopsied because of the location. Asymptomatic except for chronic cough, thinningh hair and swelling of left ankle.
Wide excision of melanoma done 2 months after diagnosis with clear margins.
Awaiting results of brain scan and biopsy of additional site on left breast before undertaking any additional surgery.
Removal of thyroid and left breast as well as sentinel lymph node for breast and melanoma current recomendations. My gut reaction is to forego any further tests and or treatment if brain scan is positive for metastis
