Melanoma Facts

What is it?

Melanoma is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells which color the skin called melanocytes.

What Does it look like?

Melanoma may appear as a new growth or as a change in the size of an existing mole.

What is it?

Melanoma  is the leading cause of skin cancer related to death because it is  likely to spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body through the  lymph or blood systems.

It wont effect me.

Every 57 minutes a person dies from melanoma.More people develop skin cancer because of tanning than develop lung cancer because of smoking.

But it's just a tan.

As  of September 2, 2014, ultraviolet (UV/UVA) tanning devices were  reclassified by the FDA to moderate to high risk devices.  The UVA rays  emitted might increase the risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin  cancer.

Reduce your risks of Melanoma

Make sunscreen a daily habit; SPF 15 or higher sunscreen reduces the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 40 percent and the risk of  developing melanoma by 50 percent.

Avoid exposure to strong midday sun whenever possible.

Wear protective clothing, long sleeves, long pants, and wide brim hats.

Protect your eyes. Wear sunglasses that block UVA and UVB rays.

Have regular skin checks and never postpone seeing a dermatologist if you have a concern. Have your spouse or friend check the skin you cannot see.

Never use a tanning bed.
