Lungs

It is not uncommon for patients with metastatic uveal melanoma to develop tumours in their lungs. These are usually picked up by an X-ray or CT scan.

Initially they may be unproblematic to the patient, but if they multiply or increase in size, they can cause symptoms such as coughing, pain in the chest and back, and shortness of breath.

Resection, radiofrequency ablation and stereotactic radiosurgery are all options which the thoracic surgeon and medical/clinical oncologist will consider.
