Rates of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer having been rising significantly during the last three decade and, waiting times for assessment of a suspicious skin lesion are long in both NHS and private sectors in the UK. CRUK reports more than 16,000 new melanoma cases per annum in the UK and more than 150,000 non-melanoma cases, although it is widely acknowledged that the number of non-melanoma cases is an underestimate. The incidence of melanoma in the UK is predicted to rise by 7% between 2014 and 2035.
