Patient Information

A melanoma diagnosis can be a confusing and traumatic time for patients. That’s why we have information available for patients and their families to support them on their melanoma journey. 

Patient Guides

These guides have been designed by Melanoma Institute Australia to support patients who have been recently diagnosed with melanoma.

The guides will help you to:

  • Answer questions you have when first diagnosed
  • Understand melanoma diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care
  • Know where to go for further information and resources

There are four different guides based on stage of disease:

  • Melanoma Prevention
  • Early Melanoma (Stage 0-II)
  • Stage III Melanoma 
  • Stage IV Melanoma 


These guides can downloaded by clicking on the link below each guide.

If you are a patient or carer and would like a printed version of a guide mailed to you please complete the 'Order Patient Guide' form using the link below. Please note that 'Melanoma Prevention' is not currently available as a printed version.
