The age-adjusted incidence rates of cutaneous melanoma in Queensland in 1987 have been analysed for 16 anatomic sites, taking into account their surface areas.
In men, the incidence of invasive melanoma on the ears, a chronically sun-exposed site, was extraordinarily high with annual rates of over 200 per 105 units of surface area in the Queensland population.
Next highest rates of over 100 melanomas per 105 units were found on the face, neck, shoulders and back in men and the face and shoulders in women.
