Melanoma.com helps address concerns for individuals who are looking for a reliable source of current information about the disease.

The content of the website has been updated, providing more in-depth discussions of a full range of topics pertinent to melanoma, including the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of this disease. For example, the site contains a thorough description of sentinel lymph node biopsy. Treatment options for each stage of the disease are also discussed. Other specific topics covered by the site include a definition of melanoma and how it develops, a description of the various types of skin cancer and how they differ, and the tests used to diagnose these diseases. Pictures, diagrams, tables and other figures that are designed to aid understanding by the user accompany many sections.

Dr. Christopher K Bichakjian and his fellow authors from the University of Michigan rated melanoma.com as one of the top five Internet sites discussing melanoma, based on the comprehensive nature of the topics covered. The authors also found the content to be accurate, based on the checklist they developed.
