Follow-up after treatment for advanced melanoma
After your treatment you’ll be seen regularly by your cancer specialist and possibly a specialist nurse at the hospital.
They’ll monitor how you’ve responded to your treatment and how any symptoms have improved, and you may have further scans, x-rays or blood tests.
Many people find that they get anxious before appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support from family, friends or a support organisation at this time. If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms in between your regular check-ups, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
Our section on life after cancer gives useful advice on how to keep healthy and adjust to life once treatment has ended.
