Melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in Australia. One person for every 120 will risk death from melanoma skin cancer by their 85th birthday, and 1 in every 18 being diagnosed with melanoma at some stage before the age of 85.
The good news is that if melanoma is identified at an early stage, simple treatment can bring good results. Whilst there have been significant improvements in treatment options for advanced melanoma over the last few years, prevention measures and early detection of new melanomas remain our best chance to reduce mortality.
