This video is worth a watch.

Lots of exciting new data out for stage 4 melanoma patients with regards to immuno and viral therapy.

For us stage 3ers they are wondering if a complete lymph node dissection is actually beneficial in micro-metastatic disease.  They also are wondering if it is worthwhile to perform surveillance with PET scans (lots of false positives and we have systemic treatment now so it is not as critical to treat local disease).
