Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center has developed a 4-part video series, Melanoma Treatment: A Patient video Guide in order to increase awareness of treatment options for all stages of melanoma so that patients are knowledgeable and empowered during their cancer journey. In the third video of this 4-part series, Abramson Cancer Center physicians discuss two approaches to care following surgery: follow-up surveillance and adjuvant therapy. Adjuvant therapy is medical treatment that follows surgery used to reduce the risk for cancer recurrence metastasis for patients who are at increased risk of developing a recurrence.
