In 2003, an estimated 54 200 cases (29 900 in men and 24 300 in women) of melanoma will be diagnosed in the United States, and 7600 people (4700 men and 2900 women) will have died of melanoma (1). The incidence of skin melanoma is increasing faster than that of any other type of cancer in the United States (2). The age-adjusted incidence of melanoma reported by the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) registries increased from 7.4 per 100 000 persons in 1973 to 20.1 per 100 000 in 1999 among white persons (3).
