I now have a lymph node or a glad swollen under the ear just behind the jaw and another along the jaw line on the left side. What are the chances that the melanoma could have spread that far? What may be the other causes? I have a PET scan scheduled.

Hello,
These new nodes may be the result of melanoma spread. The PET scan may help clarify the situation. All the best, be strong, and God Bless!
