[Editorial] Melanoma research gathers momentum

Every year, 160 000 people are diagnosed with melanoma and 48 000 die from the disease. More than 9000 deaths are in the USA, where, according to an analysis by Gery Guy and colleagues in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report on June 2, melanoma has become the fifth most common cancer for men and the seventh for women. The reported incidence of melanoma in the USA has doubled in a generation and is increasing at a rate faster than that for any other solid tumour. Therefore, the report’s predictions on incidence and costs to 2030 are a stark warning.
