“Lymph nodes affected by metastatic melanoma may not feel enlarged or firmer than normal yet still show evidence of metastatic melanoma via fine-needle aspiration or histopathology. Chest radiographs should be obtained at the time of diagnosis to assess for pulmonary metastasis. Early melanoma metastases often are subtle, so should be evaluated very carefully.”
