Malignant melanoma requires a multidisciplinary treatment approach that incorporates surgery, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and small molecule-targeted therapies. Treatment decisions are influenced by disease stage, resectability, and in the unresectable or metastatic setting, BRAF-mutation status. The malignant melanoma landscape has transformed since 2011: CTLA-4 inhibitors, PD-1 inhibitors, and BRAF/MEK inhibitors are now key treatment options for unresectable disease while adjuvant cytokine therapy remains the mainstay for early-stage disease. This analysis provides insight on current use of approved therapies for malignant melanoma in the EU5 and on factors driving physicians’ prescribing decisions.
