Melanoma Unit

The Melanoma Unit at Calvary Mater Newcastle is a specialist centre for patients with a diagnosis of melanoma.

The unit has a staff of Surgeons, Specialist Nurses, Research Staff, Oncologists and Administrative Staff. Only patients with diagnosed melanoma should be referred to the Melanoma Unit.

At the Melanoma Unit we see patients with melanoma of the skin as well as melanoma that has spread to other parts of the body. When you first visit you will be assessed and an individual treatment plan will be discussed with you. For most patients with melanoma this will involve an operation and for a small number of people this may involve drug treatments.

As part of your treatment plan determined by your Specialist Doctor, education and support is carried out by Specialist Nurses within the unit.
