Melanoma

Melanoma is the most serious type of cancer of the skin. Each year in the United States, more than 53,600 people learn they have melanoma.

In some parts of the world, especially among Western countries, melanoma is becoming more common every year. In the United States, for example, the percentage of people who develop melanoma has more than doubled in the past 30 years.

Visit the National Cancer Institute where this information and more can be found about Melanoma or ask your cancer care team questions about your individual situation.
