If it couhgt early stage are there chances survival or should I write testament?
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
No idea

Let it get diagnosed first and then staged...it's too early to say anything

Anything else I can help with?

If you get treatment soon after the condition shows up, at Stage IA, the survival rate is 97% at five years, and 95% at 10 years. The survival rates can get lower depending on how advanced the condition is when diagnosed and treated. If subungual melanoma is diagnosed at its final stage, or Stage IV, the survival rate is 15% to 20% at five years and 10% to 15% at 10 years.
