my husband has skin cancer
We knew he had a spot on his shoulder. He went in and they took a biopsy. We got the call today that it was Malignant. Anyone gone through this and what should I expect. I'm very worried right now.

I'm very sorry to hear this, and not because I know anything about it. I just know how much worry that causes.

RE: my husband has skin cancer
I can mostly just offer support and encouragement. My grandma had a fairly advanced melanoma several years ago, but has been cancer free for some time after she went through treatment with IV IG (not sure of the details, I was pretty young at the time). I know that every case is different but I'm hoping for the best for you and your husband :hugs:

Thanks, he us my life my rock my only, I don't know what I'd do without him. I don't know I can do this. My anxiety is coming back is full swing. Last attack I had I was driving on the bipass at 60 mph and curled up in a fetal position. It scares me to bad

RE: my husband has skin cancer
It depends on which kind of skin cancer it is. Most are slow-growth and easily treated by outpatient surgery, but melanoma is very dangerous and can be deadly.

My best wishes for his quick and complete treatment.

My uncle and grandpa both had it on their backs. They both had it removed and are doing fine. Hang in there.

No matter which way things go. Fully enjoy and appreciate your time together.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Wait and see what the doctors say. Maybe it'll turn out OK.

RE: my husband has skin cancer
As others have said, wait to see what the doctors say. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and it is one of the most easily curable ones. In other words, if you get diagnosed with cancer, this is one of the types you'd want to have.

A friend of mine gets tested all the time because it runs in his family and he has spots removed all the time. If you get it early, there's absolutely no reason to worry about it.

If you just randomly checked a spot without any other symptoms, it's very likely he will be fine. In any case, try to be patient and wait.

Hope everything turns out well Hug
