MAPA May 2019 PSA

 

National Melanoma Skin Cancer Prevention Month

May has been designated by the American Academy of Dermatology as National Melanoma Skin Cancer Prevention Month. The aim of this designation is to raise awareness about skin cancer, increasing the chances of early detection – when treatment can be most effective.

 

The American Cancer Society says more than 96,000 new melanomas will be diagnosed in 2019, and 7,230 people will die from melanoma before this year is over. They estimate that 1.640 Minnesotans will be diagnosed with melanoma and 130 will succumb to it in 2019.

 

What should you do to minimize your chances of getting melanoma?
Sun protection is an important part of basic wellness maintenance that is applicable to people of all skin types. This safety measure may include effective sunscreens, clothing such as rash guard shirts with a built-in sun protection, wide-brimmed hats, shade structures, and avoiding sunlight during peak afternoon hours.

Through reliable web sources such as the American Academy of Dermatology, one can become educated to perform monthly self-skin checks. For those at higher risk, whether due to personal or family history of melanoma, or because of multiple or unusual moles, a regular visit to a dermatologist can be a life saver.

Melanoma Warning Signs: ABCDE
To help spread awareness and make the melanoma warning signs memorable, the signs of a possible malignant mole can be abbreviated to the mnemonic: ABCDE.

 

 

Any of these findings should prompt a visit to your healthcare provider.
