What is Melanoma?
Melanoma is a very serious type of skin cancer that can appear at any age. People with light skin, hair and eyes are at a higher risk, as are those who have a family history of the disease or have previously had melanoma themselves. Ultraviolet rays from sunlight or tanning beds are the key contributing environmental factor.Melanoma is less common than other types of skin cancer, accounting for only about 1-2% of all skin cancers, but extremely serious and more dangerous if not found early. Melanomas may develop suddenly, but more often changes in an existing mole will alert you to the possibility of a skin cancer.

ABCDEs of Melanoma?
In order to help screen for possible melanomas, it is helpful to remember the “ABCDEs” for unusual moles
