What is and can you die from..my daughter(7) had a Atypical Spitz Tumer removed from her back two weeks ago..I want to know more about it other than the doctor saying: we don't know but an oncologist may want to cut deeper and possibly removing a gland if not it could spread and she could die if not seen. He says he thinks it is a deadly strand/form of melanoma. He scared my daughter so bad as she was in the room.
