Patrice Aminati: Daniel Aminati's wife gives skin cancer update: "I was lucky – but the shock remains"

At the beginning of April, Daniel Aminati and his wife Patrice shared the shock diagnosis themselves on their Instagram profiles. "A routine check-up by my wife Patrice revealed the diagnosis: malignant (black) skin cancer that has already metastasized," wrote the moderator. A mole on her neck turned out to be melanoma. Now Patrice Aminati has given an update.

"I found out the results of the detailed MRI, PET, CT examinations. Everything was caught during the operation … the tumor and the lymph nodes that were also affected. I was lucky," she now explains on her Instagram profile. Good news that gives her hope - and yet it's far from over. For at least a year, her body will have to continue fighting the insidious disease.

"It won't work without the immunotherapy that follows immediately. My life will change ... I have an invisible enemy in me. I'm supposed to fight - but my opponent is not visible. Preparatory examinations for the immunotherapy, which will last 12 months, are now to follow," explains the person concerned herself and reveals what her everyday life will look like in the future. "From now on it means no strength training, no sun and other things." During immunotherapy, the body must not be put under too much strain.

The most challenging thing for her is that she and her husband have to put off planning children. "At least twelve months and 16 weeks" Aminati should not become pregnant. "I'll count the days," she says.

In the comments under her post, Aminati receives a lot of encouragement, including from people who have to cope with a cancer diagnosis themselves. Black skin cancer usually looks like a birthmark at first. But usually it changes in terms of color, size and shape. It is recommended that you regularly examine your own birthmarks and have them checked by a dermatologist. You should seek medical advice if a birthmark or the skin changes unusually - apart from regular routine check-ups for skin cancer screening, which are important anyway.
