Over 525 Melanomas Have Been Diagnosed by CDI
Melanoma can be a very deadly form of skin cancer and can spread rapidly in the body if not diagnosed and treated appropriately.
“A common sign of melanoma is a change in the size, shape, or color of a mole.”
Early detection is important in order to start treatment before it metastasizes. Anyone of any skin color can develop melanoma, though it is more common in fair-skinned people. A history of sunburns during a young age has been shown to increase the risk of developing this extreme form of skin cancer. Tanning beds are also a major contributor to the development of melanoma. In fact, the World Health Organization has classified TANNING BEDS ARE AS CANCER CAUSING AS CIGARETTES.
