  1. Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that can spread to other organs in the body.

    The most common sign of melanoma is the appearance of a new mole or a change in an existing mole.

    This can occur anywhere on the body, but the most commonly affected areas are the back in men and the legs in women.

    Melanomas are uncommon in areas which are protected from sun exposure, such as the buttocks and the scalp.

    In most cases, melanomas have an irregular shape and are more than one colour.

    The mole may also be larger than normal and can sometimes be itchy or bleed.

    Look out for a mole which changes progressively in shape, size and/or colour.

    An “ABCDE moles checklist” has been developed to help you tell the difference between a normal mole and a melanoma.
