Abstract

Use this decision aid if you have malignant melanoma stage IIC and have not had a sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB), or if you have malignant melanoma stage III, to help you and your healthcare professional talk about whether or not to have regular follow-up CT scans once your treatment is finished. Your decision depends on several things that this decision aid will help explain. Different people will feel that some of these things are more important to them than others, so it’s important that you make a decision that is right for you personally.
