Melanoma is a form of cancer that develops in the skin’s pigment cells.
Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world.
Most melanoma diagnosis starts with a physical examination of a suspicious looking spot or mole.
Stages of progression are based on tumor size, ulceration and involvement of other organs.
Treatment depends on a number of factors, including the stage of melanoma, age and health.
