Dr Aimilios Lallas speaks with ecancer at the EADO 2018 congress in Barcelona on whether all Spitz-like tumours should be excised.

Dr Lallas explains that one of the main arguments for all tumours to be excised is that monitoring the lesions can sometimes lead to wrong conclusions due to the peculiar nature of the tumour's biology: therefore it is safer to excise everything.

However the probability of this kind of melanoma (especially in children) is extremely low, and Dr Lallas understands we could be more selective in this category.
