Customer Question
I was recently diagnosed...

I was recently diagnosed with a .43 mm stage 1A melanoma on my leg which was removed by WLE. Results came back that the melanoma was gone with clear margins. I also had some blood work done for an insurance health screening which showed an elevated Calcium level of 10.6. I was wondering if these 2 things could be connected at all.

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

The dermatologist checked my lymph nodes during the skin check and noticed no swelling at all.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a complete hysterectomy, leaving just one ovary, in January of this year.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
