The commonest site in men is on the back of the trunk and in women on the lower limbs. Women in general, have a better prognosis than men. Melanoma is exceedingly rare before puberty and its incidence increases with age. It is most common between 30 and 50 years of age - the most productive period of life. There is a tendency for melanomas to run in families. Familial 35 TUMOURS, LYMPHOMAS AND SELECTED PARAPROTEINAEMIAS patients tend to be younger, of Celtic origin, and prone to develop multiple primary melanomas.

Junctional naevi occur any time after birth and they are common moles in children before puberty. Their great importance lies in the fact that they may develop into a malignant melanoma, although this is denied by some workers. They rarely become malignant before puberty. In fact, most junctional naevi remain benign throughout life and evolve with the passage of time into compound or intradermal naevi. 43 TUMOURS, LYMPHOMAS AND SELECTED PARAPROTEINAEMIAS Compound naevus Compound naevi are composed of junctional and intradermal elements.

Most other prognostic variables derive their predictive ability by a secondary correlation with tumour thickness. g. 5 mm), but the probability is that there are no 'natural breakpoints' and the relationship between thickness and mortality rate is a continuous event. Thickness is easier to measure and is more reproducible than the level of invasion. It should be remembered that some thin melanomas, especially those showing signs of local regression, metastasize and may cause deathl6 • Level of invasion There is an inverse correlation between increasing (Clark's) levels of invasion and survival.
