Melanoma often occurs in individuals that have a fair complexion, use tanning beds, or are exposed to other artificial and excessive natural light.
83.7% of melanoma cases are diagnosed at an early stage.
Death from melanoma is most common among middle-aged and elderly adults. There is a better chance of survival if the cancer is localized or found in the part of the body that it originated in.
Prevention and Screening
Head-to-toe self-examinations, and early screenings by your doctor, are recommended. Regular use of sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher reduces the risk of developing melanoma by 50%.
