Surgery

Surgery can sometimes be used to help control the growth of advanced melanoma and relieve symptoms.

  • Surgery explained

    Understand surgery - how to prepare, what happens and recovery.

  • Isolated limb perfusion

    You may be given chemotherapy directly into a limb (leg or arm) to treat clusters of melanomas that have come back in the same limb.

  • Specialised treatments

    A treatment called carbon dioxide laser therapy can be used to treat small melanomas that come back in the same area.
