My 80 year old grandmother has all the symptoms of Mycosis fungoides - every doctor we go to says they have no idea what's wrong - they've never seen anything like what she has. How cacn we go about getting a correct diagnosis? Any help would be greatly appreciated - as she has been suffering for close to a year with this - with no end in sight.:confused:

  • The only way that you will know for sure if it is mycosis fungoides is to have a biopsy taken.
