Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that starts in cells known as melanocytes.

The main risk factor for melanoma is exposure to UV radiation from the sun, and Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
