The NCCN panel recommends referring to the FDA label for nivolumab. However, melanoma in situ should be excised with 5-10 mm margins, with the aim of achieving complete histological clearance. Minimum clearances from all margins should be assessed and stated. Consideration should be given to further excision if necessary; positive or close histological margins are unacceptable In 2021, an estimated 106,110 individuals will be diagnosed with cutaneous melanoma in the United States and about 7,180 will die of metastatic melanoma. 1 The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for Melanoma: Cutaneous includes recommendations for biopsy of pigmented lesions suspected to be cutaneous melanoma, and workup, treatment, and follow-up recommendations for patients with pathologically confirmed lesions

This article summarizes the data and rationale supportin The incidence of primary cutaneous melanoma continues to increase each year. Melanoma accounts for the majority of skin cancer-related deaths, but treatment is usually curative following early detection of disease. In this American Academy of Dermatology clinical practice guideline, updated treatment recommendations are provided for patients with primary cutaneous melanoma (American Joint.

The NCCN cites an MMS study that employed MMS enhanced by immunohistochemical staining as the primary treatment modality for melanoma in situ, which resulted in 99% removal of melanoma in situ when a total surgical margin of 9 mm was used, versus an 86% rate of removal with 6-mm margins The narrowest efficacious margins for cutaneous melanoma have yet to be determined. Surgical margins of 5 mm are currently recommended for melanoma in situ, and margins of 1 cm are recommended for.. The acknowledgment, acceptability, and appropriate use of these margin guidelines has been demonstrated by 2 survey studies of the ASBS (conducted first for margins in invasive cancer and then for margins in DCIS). 44,45 In addition, there is evidence that the 2014 SSO-ASTRO invasive cancer margin guideline has contributed to a change in practice NCCN Guidelines for Patients: Squamous Cell Skin Cancer.
