Cutaneous deposits of amyloid
« on: June 19, 2019, 02:15:46 PM »
Hi Miriam,

Please could you advise me as to what sort of Consultant might be able to help me, please?

I have many deposits of amyloid of varying shapes and sizes in the cutaneous layer of my skin. None has been troublesome until recently.

Those on my left side from underneath my arm right down to the base of my abdomen are very painful and heavy when I walk.

I’m wondering if it might be possible for them to be surgically removed?

Many thanks in anticipation.
Pat
