I'm 5 years post stage 1b and will be having my yearly derm exam in July. I've changed doctors so I'm not sure which blood tests are used in addition to the exam. I don't see an oncologist any longer since the SNB was negative and my primary care doctor will fill out the lab request form but she was puzzled as to what tests to order. What blood tests are used to monitor for signs of recurrance or changes in a post melanoma patient? I'm not sure I'm asking this right, so in other words what blood tests should my PCP order?
