May is Melanoma Awareness Month
Date:4/25/2013

Plainview, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2013

Melanoma is the most common and deadly form of skin cancer in the United States. Unlike many other cancers, whose incidence has dropped in recent years, the number of people diagnosed with melanoma is on the rise. What’s most troubling is that young people, notably women, make up the largest group of newly diagnosed melanoma cases, says Dr. Hui Tsou, Dermatopathologist and Assistant Medical Director of Acupath Laboratories. “We support Melanoma Awareness month and want to help educate people about what is now one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in people under age 30,” adds Dr. Tsou.

“Young adults are engaging in behaviors that put them at high-risk of developing melanoma and other types of skin cancer,” says Dr. Tsou. “It’s so important to learn how to minimize their risk of skin cancer to ensure that we catch the disease early while it’s still treatable.”

Dr. Tsou offers five tips to help detect potential cancers early:
1) Make routine skin exams a habit. The American Cancer Society recommends seeing a doctor for an annual head-to-toe skin exam and performing self-exams once a month – all year long – to look for suspicious lesions. Be sure to see your doctor if you notice a new spot or one that is changing in size, shape, or color -- the most important warning signs for melanoma. Also look for the following danger signs (known as the ABCDE rule):

  • Asymmetry: An irregular, uneven shape; one half the lesion is different from the other half.
  • Border: Jagged or blurry edges.
  • Color: Various colors, often multicolored lesions of tan, dark brown, or black, sometimes pink or red, blue or white.
  • Diameter: 6 millimeters or larger (about the size of a pencil eraser).
  • Evolution: Any change in size, color or appearance.

2) Size up your risk. Everyone needs to protect t
