Melanoma is a relatively common diagnosis, both in the primary and specialist health service. Ongoing research and new evidence base means that the recommendations for investigation and treatment are continually changing.

In this clinical review we give a summary of the latest recommendations, primarily aimed at general practitioners, dermatologists and doctors in local hospitals.
