Some Scary Stats:
One person dies of melanoma every hour (every 54 minutes).
An estimated 87,110 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017.
An estimated 9,730 people will die of melanoma in 2017.
Melanoma accounts for less than one percent of skin cancer cases, but the vast majority of skin cancer deaths.
Melanoma Monday aims to encourage people to examine their skin regularly and seek medical assistance if there are recognized signs of a malignant mole. Early detection and treatment is associated with a much higher survival rate. The first key is to know your ABC’s.
