Small uveal melanomas ’not always harmless‘

A new article from ocular researchers demonstrates that small uveal (intraocular) melanomas are not always harmless, as the current paradigm suggests. Instead, a reasonable proportion of them have molecular genetic alterations, which categorizes them as highly metastatic tumors. The article recommends that they should not be observed but rather treated immediately, to improve patients‘ chances of survival.
