Melanoma Focus

Melanoma Focus is a new charity with an active membership of more than 100 leading UK melanoma consultants, scientists and nurses. Based in Cambridge, this national charity is dedicated to providing comprehensive and authoritative information for public and professionals alike, as well as supporting education and promoting innovative research projects. Melanoma Focus will also be participating in public health campaigns for the prevention of melanoma and the improvement of its detection at an early stage – a key factor that is often critical for a patient’s survival.Around 12,800 people are diagnosed with melanoma in the UK every year and approximately 2,200 die of the disease. It is now the fastest rising cancer in men and women and affects more young adults than almost any other cancer.
