DO IT AT LEAST ONCE!… A SINGLE SKIN EXAM REDUCES THE ODDS FOR INVASIVE MELANOMA.

(MedPage Today 3/8/13).

 

Over 400 cases of Melanoma were reviewed at the annual AAD meeting and researchers showed that at least one visit to the Dermatologist’s office were 37% less likely to have an invasive Melanoma.

 

THIS MEANS THAT THE MELANOMA’S WERE CAUGHT EARLY, AND THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. GET AN INVENTORY OF ALL YOUR MOLES AT LEAST ONCE BY A DERMATOLOGIST AND SEE WHAT MOLES NEED TO BE FOLLOWED, BIOPSIED OR ARE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. THINK ABOUT DOING THIS FOR YOUR CHILDREN AS WELL- ESPECIALLY THOSE TEENAGERS THAT START TO ENJOY THE SUN.
