A resource for
melanoma patients and

concerned persons.

Welcome to About Melanoma

This website was created as the definitive resource for anyone concerned about melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, or related conditions. It is designed to provide helpful and up-to-date information while empowering you to manage your health. The purpose is complex yet powerful; educate and support skin cancer patients and concerned persons. While navigating About Melanoma, you will learn why the skin is so important to our bodies, view frequently asked questions, and many definitions.

The information is kept as simple as possible and somewhat general -- for the sake of clarity. We encourage you to review it before visiting your physician so you can determine what additional information you need and can maximize the time you spend with your physician or healthcare team.
