Yes the lump has been biopsied & is malignant & surgery is scheduled for next week. The consultant asked to see him before his pre-op today to discuss 2 nodules in his lung. The consultant said they have been there for "some time" but no more specific than that & said they could be cured by chemo tablets.
The lump is on a lymph node or gland I can't remember which. His melonomas have all been on that same side of his body but on his shoulder, back and forehead.
Ok that's clear thank you. So the nodules & the lump are independent? The consultant must have reason to believe the nodules are malignant as he has offered my Dad chemo tablets & is discussing on Monday with his team whether the op to remove the armpit lump can go ahead for next week.
OK thank you very much
