Hi, I am 34 yrs old living in Newfoundland, Canada. I have been diagnosed with melanoma stage 3+ , still waiting results from total ALND, I had one node already positive from SNB. Obviously the sun didnt cause my melanoma as we hardly get any sun in Newfoundland, no mostly rain, snow and wind. However, I did use immunosuppresants for the treatment of crohns disease for 3 years, so this is a strong contributinf factor for me. Anyhow, my topic or point of interest is: Are there any positive new treatments or even research studies that are being carried out that anyone knows about? Is this a field of cancer research with not enough emphasis? Not enough research, enough real treatments? What is the opinion out there? I am starting to wonder.
