someone i know has pre-cancerous melanoma.. what exactly is this and does it mean they will get cancer? they are putting some cream on it to get rid of it ... will this really help to cure it?
Melanoma is one of the deadliest forms of cancer. Luckily, your friend apparently caught it early as you say it is in it's pre-cancerous form (i.e. not cancer yet). I don't know about treatments, but a cream seems a bit passive in it's approach. I'd be having the doctor cut a chunk out. A2A has a section on skin cancer. I don't know if you've seen it. There, it says, Melanoma is treated surgically so I don't know about this cream stuff. CHeck out the site and do some more research of your own. There are a lot of sites out there on this subject.
