Abstract Melanoma is the most common cancer in women during their reproductive years and kills more young Australians than any other single cancer. Care of women whose pregnancy is complicated by a diagnosis of malignancy is complex. The risk of delaying treatment to the mother, the short-term and long-term risks of premature delivery to the child, and the immediate risks to the foetus and long-term risks to the child of maternal treatment with surgery, radiotherapy or medical therapies must be considered.
