This is the first article I've seen that actually includes the fact that there are at least 3 reasons for mucosal melanoma having a poorer prognosis than cutaneous:  the generally more advanced stage at which it is diagnosed, the difficulty in completely resecting from some locations, and the richer lymphovascular supply of many mucosal sites.

Interesting article.  Thanks for posting!
