Has anyone else heard of a new melanoma detection method that determines if you have it internally?? My wife was getting into her car and just turned on the radio and heard the tail end of a news flash that mentioned a new detection method for melanoma internally, however she did not hear what it is? Has anyone else heard??

Hi rlavery - I don't know if it's internal diagnostic, but I saw TV program that dogs (in trials?) can smell melanoma before detected otherwise. Pls send any info to: Nancy7L@hotmail.com as I don't check this site often.
