Dear Doctor
A week ago I had a melanome removed, now i am feeling a "lam gevoel" in my legs. Could this be a sign of cancer?

Dear Reinette
Very unlikely, melanoma will cause swollen glands, or black spots coming out in other areas. Did they get the whole thing out? You may just be very stressed at the moment due to the diagnosis and operation and everything?
Maybe just have you Bloodpressure and iron levels checked as well.
