About 2 in 3 people in Australia will develop some form of skin cancer before the age of 70 years.
Melanoma develops in the melanocytic (pigment-producing) cells located in the epidermis. Untreated, melanoma has a high risk for metastasis. The most common clinical subtype is superficial spreading melanoma (SSM) and is most commonly found on the trunk in males and lower limbs in females.
Melanomas can develop on any part of the body, including parts not heavily exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
This resource for health professionals is intended to provide consistent messages about skin cancer prevention, vitamin D and the early detection and management of skin cancer.
This resource is accepted by the RACGP.
