Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer.

Melanoma claims the lives of nearly 7,000 Americans every year.

Melanoma is the leading cause of cancer death in young women ages 25 – 30 and the second leading cause of cancer death in women ages 30-35.

9 out of 10 cases are considered to be preventable.

Optimize Your Treatment

Although the MRF cannot recommend a specific doctor, clinic or clinical trial, the Melanoma Treatment Center Finder and Clinical Trial Finder will help you find an experienced melanoma treatment team, as well as give you the opportunity to explore clinical trials. Did you know that clinical trials are often viewed as the best treatment option for Stage II, III and IV melanoma patients?

Please remember to use this information as a starting point in your search for a healthcare team that best meets your needs. All information regarding your treatment should be discussed with your healthcare professional.
