Skin cancer

This section contains information about skin cancer.

There are several different types of skin cancer. They are usually divided into melanoma and non melanoma.

Non melanoma

Non melanoma skin cancers include squamous cell and basal cell skin cancers. You can find out more in the basal cell  and squamous cell section.



Melanoma is a rare type of skin cancer which is treated very differently to basal and squamous cell skin cancers. To find out more about melanoma, and the help and support available for any affected by melanoma, please visit the Melanoma section of this website.
