Can Children Get Melanomas?

Children can get melanomas but fortunately it is rare. They do not present with normal features of melanomas in adults. Additional ABCD detection criteria (Amelanotic; Bleeding, Bump; Color uniformity; De novo, any Diameter) used together with conventional ABCDE criteria may facilitate earlier recognition and treatment of melanoma in children.
