Melanoma Cancer Conditions
Melanoma cancer is sometimes called malignant melanoma and cutaneous melanoma. Most melanoma tumors are brown or black, but some melanomas can appear pink, tan, or even white. Melanomas can develop anywhere on the skin, but they are more likely to start on the chest and back in men, and on the legs in women. The neck and face are other common sites. Melanoma cancer can also appear in the eye.
Melanoma Treatment Options
Based on the stage of the cancer, treatment options may include:
- Immunotherapy, including tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs)
- Targeted therapy
- Radiation therapy
- Melanoma vaccines
