Radiation treatment for locoregional recurrence and distant metastases from malignant melanoma


All patients have their first follow-up at their local hospital or at Oslo University Hospital 4-8 weeks after end of treatment for evaluation of treatment result, side effects, and need for other treatment.

Subsequently, the patient attends a routine follow-up schedule.

Side effects

Possible side effects may be:

  • fatigue
  • skin soreness 
  • soreness in the throat
  • diarrhea, depending on area treated

The radiated area must be protected from sun exposure during the first years after treatment since the skin can be easily sunburned.
