Melanoma accounts for the majority of skin cancer deaths,(1200 out of 1600 deaths each year in Australia) but fortunately it is the rarest of the common skin cancers. It is nearly always curable if diagnosed early.

Melanoma does not always develop from a pre-existing mole. In fact this occurs only 50% of the time.
