In brief: Unlikely

Almost all patients treated with chemotherapy only for metastatic melanoma will die within12-18 months.
There are some newer types of treatments that strictly speaking are not chemotherapy, including targeted therapy against certain genetic mutations and immunotherapy, that are much more successful.
