Melanoma staging explained
We help you understand melanoma staging
Melanoma is a serious form of cancer that arises when the pigment-producing cells in the skin (melanocytes) may display as a mole or lesion that grows, changes shape, or colour.
Our experts have created specialist resources including comprehensive information on melanoma stages and treatment to help you make informed choices.
We have a professional membership for clinicians, scientists and nurses in the field of melanoma. We provide key educational resources, the melanoma TrialFinder and research grants, in addition to organising two multidisciplinary meetings each year.
We know there is more that can be done to stop melanoma and the suffering it causes, but we need your help.
As experts in melanoma, we provide information, guidance and support for patients, carers and healthcare professionals. We have built a community of melanoma specialists who underpin our commitment to melanoma education and research.
Melanoma Information by Stage
Melanoma stage is a way of describing the key features of your melanoma and is helpful in guiding the best treatment and follow-up for you. We’ve put together information on each stage to help you.
Stage 0 melanoma is not considered a skin cancer and is sometimes called a ‘pre-cancer’.
Stage 2 melanoma is only in the skin & there is no sign that it has spread to lymph nodes or other parts of the body
