Following diagnosis of III melanoma, most patients will be seen around every three months over a period of three years, around every six months for a further two years and then on an annual basis up to ten years after diagnosis. Your medical team will carry out examinations to check if the melanoma has spread further. You may also be offered scans (for example CT scans or PET/CT scans) to check for any spread of the cancer. It is important that patients that have been diagnosed with III melanoma are aware of the symptoms to look out for that might indicate the return of melanoma.
