Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Observational study of genotypes and phenotypic correlates of pigmentation and naevus characteristics in melanoma patients, in a one-off appointment for each participant. The participant fills out a questionnaire about sun exposure and medical history, and a research assistant records skin, hair and eye colour, skin reflectance, weight and height, before taking a series of full body images and dermoscopic images of all naevi over 5mm in diameter. This process usually takes between 1 and 2 hours.

Summary
Brief summary
This study will examine the links between melanoma risk and the genetics controlling skin, hair and eye colour and mole type and distribution.

Who is it for?

You may be eligible to join this study if you are a patient of the Victorian Melanoma Service who is able to attend an appointment at the Alfred Hospital and who has had a previous or current melanoma diagnosed. People aged 18 or older are eligible.

Study details

All participants in this study will attend a one-off appointment where they will fill out a questionnaire about their sun exposure and medical history and give a saliva sample for DNA testing. A research assistant will record the participant's skin, hair and eye colour, weight and height and take full body images of the participant in their underwearas well as dermoscopic (close-up) images of moles larger than 5mm in diameter. This usually takes between 1 and 2 hours. We hope that this research will contribute to better melanoma screening procedures and identify people who would benefit from more frequent skin checks.

Data will be combined with a similar, previously registered and ongoing study (trial ID - ACTRN12615000244505).
