Want to know the secret of surviving melanoma?
It’s simply knowing your own skin.
Why, because the most sensitive indicators of melanoma are either a changing mole OR one that looks different from all your other moles.
So if you spend the time to get to know your own skin and that of your family, you’re giving yourself the best chance to find any suspicious moles earlier. And if you can do that, you’re giving yourself the best chance to deal any potential melanomas while they are just getting started and not nearly as dangerous.
Remember, melanoma is still a rare disease, so you don’t need to spend your life being worried about it. It does pay, however, to get to know your skin so if anything is a bit odd, you find it fast.
