Melanoma can be diagnosed clinically, however confirmation and staging of the melanoma is via a biopsy.
If someone had melanoma but left it untreated%2C as it progressed how would they feel in themselves%3F%0A
This is a very general question and there is not necessarily an exact answer. Melanoma when left untreated can cause a variety of symptoms. Some patients may not have any symptoms until the disease advances significantly. General symptoms such as fatigue and weakness can sometimes develop. Lastly there can be pain if there is significant growth of melanoma cells in certain parts of the body
