Hi, natte,

I'm pretty sure nobody here will know more about it than your doctors. We aren't professionals--we are just lung cancer patients/survivors/caregivers. I don't know how different the treatments for melanoma are--every cancer has its own treatments. And sorting out how immunotherapies might affect someone with MS is probably beyond the knowledge of everyone here. Even lung cancer patients respond differently to specific treatments/drugs depending on individual factors.

Asking your doctors is your best bet. And, of course, you can always seek out additional opinions if you think it would be helpful.

Sorry I can't be of more help--I hope you get some relief.
