  • My father in law had this diagnosis at the end of March. 

  • Hi, yes my father had this last summer.  Presented to A&E with acute confusion.  Several weeks later confirmed as secondary brain mets, unknown primary although this was confirmed as melanoma of unknown primary after his death 8 weeks after initial presentation to a&e.  Happy to try and answer any questions you may have.
