Who can I talk to if I have been diagnosed with melanoma?

Solbari blog: who can I talk to if I have been diagnosed with melanoma?

Being told that you have melanoma is highly disturbing news to receive. It is totally understandable that you and your family have lots of questions both in relation to your condition but also potential treatments and the associated side effects.

First and foremost it is important for you to talk to a specialist medical professional who can answer your medical questions and concerns directly so that you are not left with a vacuum of information which often adds to the suffering for you and your family.

Beyond talking to medical professionals there are a number of other avenues for melanoma patient support that exist

Skin cancer foundations and charities that offer counselling and support to skin cancer and melanoma patients include the following:
