    There are some recent (2010-2012) papers citing that adjuvent radiation therapy is being recommended for even stage I melanoma after wide excision. About 45- >50 Gy total dose, fractionated in 1.8-2Gy doses [especially for head/neck melanoma]’s?

    No, not a good idea. Can’t imagine anyone reputable would suggest that with the potential side effects, etc.
