Hi. I am a 61 year old grandmother. In Dec and Jan I found firstly a small lump behind my ear and then a larger firm lump in my neck. After a whirlwind two weeks of investigations I had a modified neck resection with removal of my parotid gland and all neck lymph glands on the right side. The pathology showed it was a metastatic melanoma stage 3 with no known primary. Then followed 25 sessions and radiotherapy which finished last week. Just starting to feel a bit better but at a bit of a loss of what to do next. Cheerio.
