Effective Ways to Prevent Melanoma Cancer


a diagnosis of skin cancer can be particularly difficult to deal with. Although melanoma is considered the most serious and deadliest form of skin cancer, there is always hope that eventually even aggressive cancers can be defeated. When detected early, melanomas are usually curable, but if left untreated, they can quickly spread to other parts of the body, leading to a very hard and nearly impossible battle.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US. Recent estimates published by the American Cancer Society show that melanoma rates have been rising over the past three decades. May is official National Melanoma Awareness Month, created to reduce cancer incidence through awareness. You can personally join the fight against skin cancer and reduce your risk in several ways.

Tips to reduce the risk of melanoma

wear sunscreen. If you limit your exposure to UV (ultraviolet) rays, you certainly stand a chance of reducing the risk of sunburn and skin damage. Broad-spectrum sunscreen is an effective remedy to help prevent melanoma.

– Do not forget to use sunglasses to protect your eyes and wear a hat to protect your face from the sun. Reduce both natural sunlight and artificial sources.

– Visit a health care professional and ask for regular exams with your dermatologist. Take enough Vitamin D, eat nutritious food and avoid an unhealthy lifestyle.


Always keep an eye out for any unusual moles or growths on your skin. Dermatologists have classified melanomas according to these signs:

A – Asymmetry

Look for moles that are asymmetrical, ragged, or uneven.

B – Border

Usually melanomas have notched or ill-defined edges.

C – Color

Multiple colors, such as brown, red, or white, appear in the lesion.

D – Diameter

Look for growths or moles that are more than 6 millimeters in diameter.

E – Evolving

Does the mole or lesion look different from the rest in size, shape, or color? If so, see your dermatologist right away!

Get involved!

You can start by helping local organizations >spread the word. Raising awareness in your community and talking about prevention and symptoms can be potentially life-saving activities. Resources such as brochures, wristbands, videos and webcasts may prove key in the fight against skin cancer.

Educate the public with Info-graphics brochures, a list of risk factors and website links for newly diagnosed patients. Awareness wristbands can really make a difference too. Besides being super cool fashion accessories, custom silicone bracelets have a number of other uses. They can be designed to raise community awareness of various causes.
