Cancer types

Melanoma (malignant melanoma)

This section will help you to find out more about a type of skin cancer called melanoma.


If you are looking for information on basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers, please visit the Basal cell and squamous cell skin cancer section of this website, as they are treated differently to melanoma.

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
