POLL: Do You Treat More Male or Female Patients With Melanoma?


Click here to answer this week's poll.

At the beginning of 2023, the American Cancer Society estimated that approximately 97,610 new melanomas will be diagnosed, with about 58,120 melanomas in men and 39,490 in women. The society also estimated that approximately 7,990 people in the US are expected to die of melanoma, with about 5,420 men and 2,570 women.1 In both estimates, men are more likely to be diagnosed with melanomas and are more likely to die of melanoma.
