Melanoma In Your Bone Marrow

Postby gwevyl » Tue May 03, 2016 3:49 pm

recently,my father has been diagnosed with melanoma in his bone marrow. but before all that in 1989 or 90. my daddy was diagnosed with lymph node cancer and was given 6 months to live. he was a survivor.after 10 to 12 years. he was cancer free.in 2002 my daddy started to get sick again. he wouldn't go to a doctor.finally,he went and was diagnosed in 2009 to have hepatitis ac and liver disease and he is in stage 4 and that he had tumors in his lungs.recently he was told that his body was not producing any white blood cells and the cause was the medicine that he had to inject his self with was poisoning his body.and breaking his white blood cells.the question i guess i am looking for is what is the real facts and diagnoses for melanoma bone cancer.

Melanoma In Your Bone Marrow

Postby howard » Tue May 03, 2016 6:23 pm

A malignant melanoma that has spread to one or several lymph nodes is not necessarily a death sentence even though the risk is big. But if indeed it has spread to the bone marrow(or to the liver or the lungs) it is definitely a stage 4 malignancy(cancer) and as such at present both incurable and eventually lethal. Chemotherapy is at present not very effective against this tumor illness but is toxic to the bone marrow and white blood cells. So the basic facts given above are correct.
