Melanoma is a concise handbook that identifies best-practice guidelines and presents the most current procedures for the diagnosis and management of melanoma in a succinct and easy-to-read manner. Chapters cover melanoma pathology, biopsy techniques, staging and risk stratification, surgical treatment of localized melanoma, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, and guidelines for resected melanoma, targeted therapy, cytotoxic chemotherapy, and management of brain metastases, mucosal and ocular melanoma, and pediatric melanoma patients.

A huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes to make these grants happen and give researchers the resources they need to get them closer to the answers to cancer. Chief Executive, Dr Helen Rippon, gave an interview about why we do what we do. Listen here.
