Dermal melanoma

Dermal melanoma: Introduction

Dermal melanoma: The term "primary dermal melanoma" has been used to describe a solitary melanoma lesion confined to the dermal and/or subcutaneous tissue in primary unknown melanoma cases. There are no significant histopathological differences between primary dermal melanoma and cutaneous metastasis of melanoma. The most important distinction to be made is with metastatic melanoma, because the prognoses for stage IV melanoma and primary dermal melanoma are vastly different. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Dermal melanoma is available below.
