Mucosal Melanoma

What is mucosal melanoma?

Mucosal melanomas are rare, representing only about 1-2% of all melanomas. 55% of all primary mucosal melanomas occur in the head and neck region, with the nose and paranasal sinuses being the most common sites.

As the principal UK melanoma charity, Melanoma Focus leads in the development of clinical guidelines for rare forms of melanoma using methodology that has been accredited by NICE.
