Mom received the results from her scan. They will be removing lymph nodes from her arm/under her arm as well as removing the areas around the original site of the cancer to make sure it is clear - the surgery is scheduled for Tuesday. Additionally, they will be treating lymph nodes in her chest with radiation. Sounds like six months worth of treatment for her. The good news was that the rest of her scan was remarkably clear for an 84 year old woman.

Sounds relatively good! Hope the removal process goes smoothly.

Mom had to be at the hospital 2 hours ago, no word on when she will be in surgery but hopefully it won't be too long - she hasn't eaten or had anything to drink since midnight.

My husband is a survivor of MCC. He had it in 2005. Surgery to remove. Once it was determined what it was, a second surgery was performed to do a wise excision. He then had radiation. Be advised that this is a recurring type cancer. My husband has been lucky and did not have any recurrence. Prayers for you and your mom as you battle this monster!

Glad your husband has not had any recurrences. Mom is 84 and in good health otherwise. I hope that she is able to recover quickly from this surgery and gets through the radiation part of it as well.

She keeps saying she's not sure how she could have got this because it generally occurs in people who have a suppressed immune system or are old. I guess she does not consider 84 to be old.

Mom came through the surgery well. They took the tissue from around the initial site of the cancer and two lymph nodes. She will soon begin radiation treatment. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers.

My mother followed up with the surgeon on Friday and was told that all of the tissue from the area that they took was clear as were the two lymph nodes. She still needs radiation, but she is very relieved.
