  1. we understand the possibly side effects can be a bit concerning. One of our advocates shares how she tries to manage these symptoms https://skincancer.net/life-with-skin-cancer/immunotherapy-routine. I would encourage you to discuss the risks of forgoing treatment vs the potential side effects with your doctor. Nodular melanoma is very aggressive https://skincancer.net/life-with-skin-cancer/nodular-melanoma. Our community is here to support youđź’•.
