Researchers seek a vaccine to treat and prevent melanoma
Therapy is the first to extend lifespan in advanced cases.
"Ginger" mice are found to be more susceptible to melanoma even without any exposure to ultraviolet radiation
The insights could lead to longer-lasting therapies for the deadliest of skin cancers
What does skin cancer have to do with Parkinson's disease, the degenerative brain condition that causes tremors, slowed gait and problems with balance and coordination?
Fifteen percent of a sample of 136 trout caught near the Great Barrier Reef showed evidence of melanoma, with UV exposure the likely culprit. Christopher Intagliata reports
Genetically tailored approach could slow disease progress.
Sun exposure has always been considered the driving force behind rising rates of melanoma. But new research suggests that repeated, long-term use of pesticides may be an important factor, too
We've all heard the horror stories. Melanoma is one of the most dangerous kinds of skin cancer, killing around 50,000 people worldwide every year. If caught early enough, it can be cured, but once it invades past the skin, it's deadly.
Certain damaging reactions that can lead to melanoma-causing mutations may take hours to evolve and mostly occur after you get out of the sun
