Melanoma Removal and Work-up

Ultima Vez Modificado:: 14 de septiembre de 2005

Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
I recently had a malignant melanoma removed. Is it important to do a wide excision and why? Do I need a sentinel node removal? Can anything else show cancerous cells in my body? Like a PET scan or MRI or CAT scan? Someone told me that every mole in your body could be found to have cancer cells. Is this true? Does the lymph node ever kill the cancer cells?
