After treatment for recurrent melanoma, you will have regular follow-up appointments. Your specialist will let you know how often these will be.
During these appointments, your specialist will examine any areas that have been treated for melanoma. They will also examine any existing or new moles, and your lymph nodes.
Sometimes, a melanoma that has previously come back in the same area can spread to other parts of the body. This is known as a secondary cancer (metastasis). If a melanoma does spread to other parts of the body, further treatment can be given. You can read more about this in the advanced melanoma section.
