Can I join the military if I have tumors in my body?

Postby dawayne » Thu Jun 06, 2013 10:49 pm

I have 1 tumor on my foot, and two on my back. I'm schedule to get them removed this August.

I graduate high school last year! I'm 18 years old.

40-501 Standards of Medical Fitness

2–31. Tumors and malignant diseases

a. Current benign tumors (M8000), or conditions that interfere with function, prevent the proper wearing of the uniform or protective equipment, or will require frequent specialized attention, or have a high malignant potential, such as Dysplastic Nevus Syndrome, do not meet the standard.

b. Current or history of malignant tumors (V10) does not meet the standard. Skin cancer (other than malignant melanoma) removed with no residual, is not disqualifying.
