Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the UK. Over the last decade, the number of people being diagnosed with malignant melanoma has increased by almost half.

Research and finding effective treatment are key to helping patients – which is where the hospital charity comes in. We help the skin cancer team conduct trials into some of the many other forms of skin cancer where there is less understanding of the most effective treatments.

The trials aim to ease the burden of treatments on patients, whilst still fighting the cancer and improving the patient’s quality of life and life expectancy. The trials also give patients more treatment options when standard treatments have failed.
