New Follow-Up Recommendations For Malignant Melanoma Published

WESTPORT, Dec 28 (Reuters Health) - A team of researchers from

Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, has developed follow-

up guidelines for patients with malignant melanoma.  The

recommendations are published in the December 1st issue of

Cancer.  Dr.  Wen-Jen Poo-Hwu, currently at Memorial Sloan-

Kettering Cancer Center in New York, New York, an co-

investigators reviewed data on 373 patients with Stage I-III

melanoma.  The team analyzed the length of time between initial

visit and recurrence, methods used to detect recurrence, whether

recurrence was symptomatic (ie, detected by the patient) or

asymptomatic (ie, detected by routine monitoring protocols), and

whether survival was different if recurrence was detected by the

patient rather than during routine surveillance.
