Topic: Why see a uveal melanoma oncologist and how to talk with your oncologist about clinical trials?

A Cure in Sight is joined by Dr. Justin Moser, a medical oncologist in the Phoenix, Arizona area.

He shares helpful tips to keep in mind when having discussions with a medical oncologist, and why it’s vital for patients to be seen and under the watch and care of a medical oncologist either familiar with uveal melanoma protocols for scans and care, or someone who is willing to learn from another oncologist in the field.

Dr. Moser explains some of the process behind selecting a clinical trial for a patient experiencing metastatic spread, and how you as a patient can ask for less known trials that are not entirely ready for Uveal melanoma yet, but are planned to have a few spots for uveal melanoma spread.

Thank you Dr. Moser for your time and research!
