With wide excision (removal with an appropriate amount of normal skin around it) and possibly sentinel node biopsy
The width of the excision varies depending on the thickness of the melanoma
as does the need for node biopsy. Depending on the location, you may be able to have the wound closed with stitches (not common), have a skin graft
(more common), or have a complex plastic surgical repair.
