      I have over 10amelanotic melanomas. I had invasive melanomamelanomas, stage 1 in 2005.  In July 2018 found 6 amelanotic melanomas and the number has been increasing since then as I am learning what to look for. With surgery margins are not clear on most of them. 

      Has anyone had a similar situation?

      Are there other treatments options?

          I had one amelanotic melanoma.  Had it removed and an SLNB.  Unfortunately, there was cancer on the lymph node so I had a CLND under my right arm.  And then went through a clinical trial of Opdivo/Yervoy.  So far so good.  Scans have all been clear so far.

              Glad to hear the treatment plan worked!  That’s good news.
