This restricted and “polluted” wisdom can have dramatic results for sufferer. the purpose of this booklet is to diffuse all points of melanoma biomarkers, from their biochemical peculiarities to all medical implications via passing via their body structure and pathophysiology.

This severe technique in the direction of outdated and new melanoma biomarkers should still foster a deepened and necessary realizing of the diagnostic and prognostic index of those basic parameters of laboratory drugs and within the similar time facilitating the learn of recent and extra sensitive-specific indications of the melanoma phone proliferation.

A good example of a successful screening test is the use of cytology (PAP test) in screening for cervical cancer. This screening is estimated to have reduced the incidence of cervical malignancy by at least 60 % and death from cervical cancer by 20–60 % [7]. 3 Established Screening Tests Currently, only a small number of screening tests have been shown to reduce mortality from cancer. These include mammography in screening 29 for breast cancer (especially in women >50 years of age), the Papanicalaou (PAP) test in screening for cervical cancer, both faecal occult blood testing (FOBT) and flexible sigmoidoscopy in screening for colorectal cancer (CRC) and lowdose computed tomography (CT) in screening high-risk subjects for lung cancer (for review, see refs [8, 9]).
