Melanoma is a very dangerous skin cancer that results in malignant tumors that often resemble moles. Usually caused by overexposure to sunlight or tanning beds, this dangerous form of skin cancer is responsible for thousands of deaths in the U.S. every year.
Diagnosing Melanoma early is vital, which makes it important to constantly be on the lookout for warning signs, including the appearance of new moles or any old moles that grow or change shape. These self-examinations can help detect Melanoma and can greatly increase the success of treatment.
For early stage Melanoma cases, surgically removing the mole is a sufficient treatment. In Stage III and Stage IV cases, additional treatments may be needed, as the cancer can spread to the lymph nodes or other organs.
When a suspicious mole or skin lesion appears, the first step should be visiting your doctor. Diagnosing the condition early and accurately can help develop a treatment strategy that is right for you.
