my father has been diagnosed with maligment melanoma. it is 4mm, we dont know what stage as he has not had surgery yet. which is in 4 weeks, we are trying to get it sooner. we are so worried, we dont have much info. have people survived 4mm deep. why would he not need treatment. do they think he has no chance? hope someone can help.
