Prof David Whiteman - QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Brisbane, Australia

Prof David Whiteman speaks with ecancer at the EADO 2018 congress in Barcelona about the changing rates of melanoma incidence.

Prof Whiteman explains some countries which have had years of rising melanoma incidence, such as Australia and Denmark, have seen rates plateau or even decline in recent years due to an increase in public education.

He also shares differing trends across population groups, including that in Australia, New Zealand and the Southern Hemisphere men have double the rate of melanoma compared with women, with the difference particularly considerable among older age groups.
