    Just got the news that my 21 year old daughter has skin cancer. Looks like they caught it early but don't know for sure yet. Not fun at all! Please remind your loved ones to wear LOTS OF SUNSCREEN when they go outside.

    Feeling it for you. I went through similar shit with my own daughter.
    Even when the immediate threat is dealt with the aftermath still take a lot out of you.
    My thoughts are with you all.

    Be strong. She'll beat it. I had to deal with a relative that had melanoma but I'm assuming that is not the case with your daughter.

    Doc says it's a melanoma but it was pretty small and he believes it was just in that localized area. Gonna have to take a chunk more of skin out though to be sure, as well as test lymph nodes. My poor girl! At least it's on a leg not her face or something.

    Thanks to all of you for the kind words, thoughts, and prayers. VERY MUCH appreciated! Hopefully in a few weeks I have good news to report.

    I was going to ask which of the 3 main types she had and then I saw this. Thankfully they found it early and as you said, it's on her leg. Women are much more concerned when it's on their face. (My ex had basil cell on one side of her nose - they had to take a small chunk out and replace it with cartilage from her ear - obviously, it freaked her out).

    My family will be Praying for your family. May God Bless her and your Family.

    Sorry to hear this and hope it can be taken care of since they caught it early. I was very fortunate that mine was caught early and I had an exceptionally good surgeon who was able to remove it with very little scaring after the surgery.

    Hey man,

    I just wanted to take a minute to say your daughter is going to be FINE.... It sounds like she has a strong MOTHER/FATHER that really cares about her. When a person has a support system like she clearly has then no illness is strong enough to harm her, PERIOD ! I was with Pancreatic cancer about 8 year ago. I have continued to gain weight and though most days are painful as shit I still get up and take on the world.

    It is serious but that does not pale in comparison to the love you have for her. Again keep your head up and I wish you well.

    Thanks
