Couldn't find what you looking for?


Are there any people here who have survive melanoma? Care to share more about the treatment you received? I am trying to understand this illness and make more sense about the things that I heard. Is melanoma resistant to radio therapy? Is this what makes melanoma so hard to treat? Is surgery considered the only option to treat melanoma?


Hi there. First I want to say - sure there are people who have survived melanoma.
I'm too at the point of looking for new melanoma treatment options and gathering more info on the disease.
I've come across 2 drugs - Yervoi (immunotherapy) and Rigvir (virotherapy). Both work on the immune system, and both sound really promising.
Yervoi is brand new, as far as I've read, while Rigvir is available only in Latvia.
Hopefully was useful for you.
