More From Eric
I’m 30, originally from Mississauga, and work as a mechanical engineer.
My Experience with Melanoma
I discovered it a year ago (May 2010) after my wife recommended that I have our family doctor take a look at my moles.
Since the Diagnosis
I was most surprised by how quickly it got treated because of how important it is to prevent it from growing. Within a couple days from the melanoma being discovered I was at the surgeon having a larger area removed.
Advice I’d Give
Remember that the small moles can be dangerous as well. Pay close attention to colour because they have to start small at some point.
Thank you to my wife because without her I still wouldn’t have had it removed and who knows how that would have ended up.
