Q: What are the treatment options for the melanoma in situ?

A: If you are diagnosed with melanoma, there are usually two situ treatment options.

  • In the cases of melanoma in stage 0, excision of the affected cells and surrounding healthy issue is the first option for patients with melanoma in suit. Almost all the patients with melanoma in suit can be cured successfully under an adequate excision. What’s more, repeated surgical treatment must be kept doing until all margins of the area in concern are clear.
  • In the cases of malignant melanoma in situ of the head and neck, excision can’t be adapted because of the risk of disfiguration. Instead, imiqiumod is regarded as another effective treatment without the risk of excision.
