Upon biopsy, the lesion was diagnosed as superficial spreading melanoma. In addition, the patient had lymphadenopathy in the right axilla, and a sentinel lymph node biopsy was consistent with melanoma in three lymph nodes with no extracapsular extension present. A full staging workup was negative for any additional involvement. What would be the most appropriate therapy for this patient?
