Does anyone have any info on this type of melanoma. It is rare and hard to locate info.

Try searching on desmoplastic neurotrophic melanoma or desmoplastic melanoma. The definition is, an uncommon type of melanoma that appears as a scar of keloid like abnormality on the head and neck area of sun damaged skin of the elderly.
Hope that helps.

Thank you-My 40 yr old son has had surgery and just finished 7 weeks of radiation for this type and I am hoping to find info on new immunotherapies. Trying to locate centers that specialized in this type of rare melanoma.
