Can you relate to this?
I couldn’t believe my ears as I listened to a very sweet patient tell me how long she had watched her mole as it had changed and now had many colors! It was very scary for her to know she had developed a malignant melanoma. We sat together and made a plan to remove the cancer and test her lymph nodes at the same time. It was a great experience to call her when her pathology came back and the melanoma was gone! Free and clear! These are the times that make all of the years of residency and the discouraging times so worth it. Smile and make someones day!
