My husband has stage 4 melanoma. He has it in his brain, lungs, kidneys, liver, just about everywhere. Will it ever get in his bones? Just very concerned. He is taking chemo right now but hope to go back to MD Anderson soon but they found another mass in his brain so dont know when we can go back. Can it also get in his spine? The doctors have told me that there is no real cure for melanoma. Is that true?
