2nd cancer - melanoma
I can't believe I am back to the beginning again. After surviving the last year of IDC dx, surgery, chemo, rads + hormonal blockers...I just had a skin biopsy come back as melanoma.
Not sure where to post, I thought maybe there was somewhere for secondary type cancers. I am wondering if there is a link somehow? I am always vigilant about sunscreen, I don't even stay out much in the sun uncovered. And I esp haven't been out in the past year with my bc treatment.
To make matters worse, it is on my left arm which is my lymphedema risk side. I totally forgot (!) when the dermatologist went to do the biopsy. So far no signs of LE, but now have to have more of a spot excised.
Anyone else experience this? I am off to research links with BC and melanoma. I am having a hard time understanding how this can happen after I did dose dense AC+T, wiping out all my cells. I don't get it.
