Melanoma: The best test would be a lymph node biopsy to check for melanoma.

See your doc: I would bring these lymph nodes to the attention of your surgeon. If they appear suspicious a biopsy would be performed to obtain a diagnosis.

Questions: Lots of questions to help figure this out. Where are the nodes, where was the melanoma, how deep was it and how was it treated? How long ago was the melanoma found? If the nodes are in the drainage basin of the primary melanoma, that is more cause for worry than if they are elsewhere.
