Five weeks into Vemurafenib Melanoma Man asked me to look at a new growth on his left shoulder. "What does it look like?" said he. "Can't say, like nothing I've ever seen before. Maybe something you'd find on the moon or maybe a shoulder cactus?" I've seen a lot of stuff, much of it on Melanoma Man: 9 primary melanomas, a zillion basal cells, a few squamous cells.
Melanoma Man advised later that he thinks the shoulder cactus is called by a German name, but he can't recall. Sent me a text today regarding his new calf cactus: Keratoacanthoma. Fancy.
