In brief: Varies

It depends on depth of melanoma at time of excision and whether any lymph nodes are involved.
Early melanomas less than .75 millimeters have close to a 100 per cent survival. Dpeer melanomas greater than 1 mom, then greater 2 mm, and 3 mm. Have lower per cent age of 5 year cure rate. There are 2 new drugs for advanced melanomas. Early treatment is essential.
