Melanoma excision

John L. Bezzant, M.D.

Excision of a melanoma above the left breast of a 26-year-old white woman. She had a melanoma that measured roughly .5 mm in depth, and it carried a good prognosis. The prognosis at that time was an additional 1.5 cm radius of skin should be taken around the original lesion.
