Malignant melanoma is a rapidly proliferating, highly metastatic, deadly skin cancer and many people are unaware of the importance of early detection. It is especially crucial for advanced practice nurses to assess the skin of all of their patients, regardless of the primary complaint from the patient. The poster, Malignant Melanoma, describes the significance of the disease process, signs and symptoms, the pathophysiology, treatment, and implications of nursing care for this highly invasive skin cancer. The purpose of this electronic poster is to inform fellow peers and the public about the deadly effects of melanoma, ways to prevent contracting melanoma, how to identify a potential malignant melanoma growth on the skin, the risks of malignant melanoma, and future care of a patient who has had melanoma.
