Facts You Should Know About Melanoma

Melanoma is not the most common type of skin cancer, but it is the most dangerous. Melanoma causes more deaths per year than any other skin cancer. Unfortunately, the incidence of melanoma in people under the age of 40 is on the rise, especially women. By simply being aware of melanoma risk factors and taking the necessary precautions, such as applying sunscreen daily, you can significantly lower your risk of developing melanoma or catch it early if it does occur.
