Should I talk to my doctor about my mucosal melanoma symptoms?

Generally, once you start to notice symptoms of mucosal melanoma, the cancer is quite advanced. For this reason, it's very important to talk to your doctor if you notice any symptoms that you think may be caused by mucosal melanoma. Suspicious symptoms may include pain or bleeding in the nose, mouth, anus, and vagina. Difficulty swallowing may suggest mucosal melanoma in the esophagus. These symptoms are often caused by much less serious conditions, but if you suspect mucosal melanoma, talk with your doctor right away.
