URGENT – Looking for melanoma specialists in Hong Kong

      Could anyone advise on where to be followed by melanoma specialists in Hong Kong?

      This is for a dear friend of mine who is going to move there this summer  for work purposes.

      Bad timing as he is currently awaiting for scan results and there is a suspicion that his melanoma (nodules which were excised) has spread. Which means he would have to start systemic therapy. 

      He is in very good hands at one of the best melanoma centers in France right now.

      Dilemna is to stay here being sure of an excellent standard of care or to go to Hong Kong with his family  where his new job awaits him but no hospital contacts!

      Many thanks in advance for names/adresses and their track record!

                      Hi Harriet,

                       

                      Thanks for asking!

                      I am currently on half dose Zelboraf + corticoids and feeling fine apart from a bit of tiredness, curly thinning hair, a few pimples and the occasional sunburn.

                      Things seem to be ok on the outside. Petscan in 10 days will tell about the inside…

                            Here is a PDF that may have some information about treatment centers http://www.fmshk.org/database/articles/03mb7.pdf            The Chinese University in Hong Kong or Prince of Wales  Shatin Hong Kong may be a good place to start.
