Melanoma Treatment

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that is typically caused by UV exposure (sunlight or tanning beds). It can arise out of normally looking skin or out of an existing mole, but evolution or change in the lesion is a very common feature of this dangerous skin cancer.

Did you know that melanoma is the most common type of cancer in people 25-29 years old? Melanoma can occur at any age and if left untreated, can be deadly.

Recognizing the risk factors is key. Fairer skin, lighter eyes (blue), lighter hair, family history and/or personal history of melanoma, and UV exposure are all risk factors that can increase your individual risk of melanoma.

Recognizing dangerous features is critical to identifying a dangerous lesion. Learn your ABCDE’s: Asymmetry, Border irregularity, Color variation, Diameter enlargement, and Evolution. These five criteria can help predict concerning lesions, but you’ll need your dermatologist’s expertise to apply them most efficiently to your lesions. So if you have a concerning spot, please make an appointment.

Dermatology is the specialty that knows your skin the best. Don’t wait, call your dermatologist today.
