Silvia: Madre de Paciente con Morfea

Lima, Peru

Scotch Thistle and Bumblebee by Sherrill Knaggs, ISN Artist Tengo un hijo de 30 años, a quien le salió una mancha blanquecina y tambien rosácea en el muslo. Fue al especialista, dermatólogo, y le hicieron una biopsia, donde le salió como diagnóstico "Cuadro Morfologico en Etapa Tardia."

Bueno soy una madre que se encuentra desesperada, porque me dicen que es una especie de cáncer.

Quisiera por favor que algun especialista me de información sobre este resultado y cuál es su tratamiento, y si la enfermedad se lleva toda la vida. Por favor espero me sepan comprender mi desesperacion.

Quedando muy agradecida. Por favor estare esperando a todas las personas que me puedan ayudar. Dios los bendiga.

Webmaster's Note: We have good news for you! Morphea is not cancerous. "End stage morphea" would mean that the morphea spot is no longer active and perhaps beginning to fade, which usually happens in two to five years, even without treatment. Fortunately, people with morphea have a normal life expectancy!
