Has anyone experienced or dealt with melanoma cancer recurrence?

I had melanoma 4 yr. ago and am always on the lookout for recurrence, but it is a very tricky disease. Has anyone else dealt with post melanoma self care or has any suggestions on spotting caner recurrence symptoms?

  • Well, I know that I have to be really diligent about any moles that appear and have them removed, but I've heard that when you have melanoma on the face or head that it often recurs in the brain. Thankfully, I am still cancer free and don't want to obsess over it, but don't want to ignore any signs or symptoms either. Thanks for the good wishes. I am very blessed not to have had to go through chemo or radiation.
