Diagnosis

A melanoma diagnosis can be overwhelming. It is important to understand your diagnosis, so that you can participate with your treating clinician in the decision making about your treatment.

How is Melanoma Diagnosed?

If you have a skin lesion, spot or discolouration that is of concern to you, it is recommended that you consult a skin cancer professional. This could be your general practitioner or you might get a referral to a specialist.
