Abstract

The risk of a second primary melanoma was evaluated in a series of 521 cases of malignant melanoma observed from 1967 to 1974. It was found that a malignant melanoma patient is about 900 times more likely to have a second primary melanoma than an individual in the general population. The risk is age and sex dependent.
