    What is the action plan for finding 0.8mm in SLN? Is it necessary for removing all of the lymph nodes?

    We’ve discussed the pros and cons of removing all the nodes vs. partial. I have not seen a measurement such as you mentioned for the nodal involvement. Was it considered micro or macro? It sounds like a bit of overkill to have a full node dissection. Can you get another opinion? Is she in a place of melanoma excellence?
