I only just noticed since dx maybe since I was hypersensitive in that area. Good points. I will ask about derm doc removal vs during surgery. Thanks again!

Are these skin mets visible on the skin? I have a place sort of where my leg meets my groin but just looking at it, everything looks normal. No raised places, etc. But you can feel something under the skin. Would skin mets be visible to the naked eye?

The met that I had was in that same location but it was visible and was raised. It was irritated because of the location. The dermatologist said that if it is a cyst that the skin is free to move over the cyst. That was not true for the met.

My skin moves freely so that makes me feel a little better. I'll keep an eye on it and see what happens.

Thanks Bill. How was the met to the thigh discovered. Typically the CT scans go to mid thigh. Was it symptomatic?

Yes, you could feel it through the muscle, never caused pain, though.
