How to treat quiz: Strategies for the early detection of melanoma

Relevance to General Practice

Australia has the highest incidence rate of melanoma in the world, and estimates predict the condition is on the rise. It also remains the number one cause of cancer-related deaths in Australians aged 20-39. 
A thorough total body skin examination and dermoscopic examination together with several non-invasive imaging technologies are now considered current best practice in the assessment of melanocytic lesions, especially in high-risk patients. Regular self -examination of the skin is a well-established life saving measure.
