How common is melanoma?

The American Cancer Society’s estimates for melanoma in the United States for 2024 are:

  • About 100,640 new melanomas will be diagnosed (about 59,170 in men and 41,470 in women).
  • About 8,290 people are expected to die of melanoma (about 5,430 men and 2,860 women).

According to the American Cancer Society...

  • Cancer of the skin is by far the most common of all cancers in the United States.
  • Melanoma accounts for only about 1% of skin cancers but causes a large majority of skin cancer deaths.
  • The 5-year survival rate of melanoma (when detected early and still early stage) is 90%.
  • Once melanoma spreads to distant parts of the body, such as the lungs, liver, skin, or lymph nodes in other parts of the body, the 5-year survival rate decreases to 35%.
