What do I need to know about caring for someone with mucosal melanoma?

If you are caring for someone with mucosal melanoma, it's important to help that person both physically and emotionally. During treatment, help them follow medical advice from their doctors. After treatment, ensure they see their doctor for regular screenings to make sure the cancer hasn't spread. Sometimes, emotional support can be even more important than physical support. This is especially true if mucosal melanoma has advanced too far to respond much to treatment. Make sure you help them with the emotional and mental challenges that may be an effect of this kind of prognosis.
