Abstract/Summary Melanoma is a common cancer of humans. Global incidence varies significantly based on a number of risk factors. To a large extent these risk factors have been determined from hypotheses arising from the global distribution, including risk factors such as skin colour and ultraviolet radiation. This chapter discusses the distribution of melanoma, risk factors and preventive measures.
