Follow-up of Patients with Cutaneous Melanoma who were Treated with Curative Intent

This is a clinical practice guideline for patients with cutaneous melanoma after treatment with curative intent. The guideline provides recommendations on follow-up schedules, involving appropriate evaluations and timing for early detection of local-regional recurrence, distant metastases, and new primary melanomas. Diagnostic imaging modalities such as ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), and PET/CT, laboratory tests such as LDH and S100B, skin self-examinations, and dermoscopy/dermatoscopy are discussed.
