      Is anyone aware of any case studies of metastatic melanoma, of unknown origin, with complete regression?

          Melanoma without a known primary is actually pretty well known and thus pretty documented on this site and other places although obviously really surprising to the person when it happens. If you search here you find find people. I am not sure what you mean by “complete regression.” Do you mean “cured.” I don’t think doctors really have case studies like that. We are really just entering a world with stage IV folks living 5+. So we may be entering that phase were it is no longer automatically a terminal disease.
