DecisionDx-Melanoma (Castle test): When is it necessary?
After having melanoma removed from my scalp in June, I had my first checkup today with my original dermatologist that found it. He mentioned that I might want to have a Castle test done. From reading about it on the company's website, it almost sounds as if it is for people who have *not* had a SNB and are trying to decide. I *did* have them and all came out clear.
It sounds like the Castle test does not really give much actionable information for someone like me. I am going to reach out to my surgeon (at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa) to see what they say about it. So far they have said I am clear and only need to have quarterly checkups with my dermatologist like anyone else.
I would appreciate any comments or experiences….
