If you have had an early stage melanoma with no spread to your lymph nodes or any other part of your body, it’s highly likely that sim­ply re­mov­ing it will cure you.

Melanoma is more dif­fi­cult to treat in the later stages. Of all those di­ag­nosed with melanoma in Eng­land and Wales, about 86 out of ev­ery 100 peo­ple will live for at least five years. About 83 out of ev­ery 100 will live for at least 10 years.

Melanoma UK’s chal­lenge and de­sire is to give pa­tients and their fam­i­lies much-needed sup­port dur­ing the very dif­fi­cult times faced upon di­ag­no­sis. It aims to get them ac­cess to the best care avail­able and sup­port them through­out the jour­ney.

Pa­tients, fam­i­lies, car­ers and clin­i­cians are at the heart of their work. The or­gan­i­sa­tion is pas­sion­ate about its work and has worked tire­lessly to get re­sults.
