Get checked out – May is Melanoma month!

http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-beach-under-sun-image6247701 Did you know that melanoma is the 5th most common cancer in men and the 7th most common cancer in women? Melanoma also happens to be the most common cancer in young adults from 25-29 years old. Another statistic that reflects the increasing incidence of melanoma is that the lifetime risk of babies born now is 1 in 50. The lifetime risk was 1 in 2000 if you were born in 1900 and 1 in 1000 if you were born in 1950. Isn’t it amazing to see how the lifetime risk has gone from 1 in 2000 to 1 in 50 in the matter of a century?

Early detection is key! The reason being that the thinner the melanoma is, the better the prognosis. Melanoma is the skin cancer that can metastasize and kill. With that in mind, what should a person look for and be suspicious of? I tell patients of mine to go after the “ugly duckling.” The ugly duckling sign has been found and proven to be one of the most sensitive ways for physicians and patients to detect a very abnormal mole and even melanoma. What this means is that we tend to have a family or 2 to 3 families of moles that looks similar to each other. The ugly duckling is the one that looks the most different from the others. For examples, if you have numerous flat light to medium brown moles, then a two toned (red/brown) mole or black mole may stand out from the rest. That is the mole that should be targeted for a biopsy. A biopsy of a mole is the gold standard for diagnosing a melanoma. Most (2/3 of time) melanoma presents de novo. Melanoma can present within normal or clinically atypical moles 1/3 of time. So, if you notice a new mole that looks like an ugly duckling, get it checked out.

What risk factors make an individual at risk of developing a melanoma? Here is a short and focused list: red hair, fair skin type (blonde hair, blue eyes as toddler), history of more than 5 sunburns at any time, more than 50 to 100 moles, family history (1st degree relative) of melanoma, any tanning bed use, history of non-melanoma skin cancers (basal or squamous cell cancers), history of atypical/dysplastic moles.

So, if you said yes to two or more of those listed risk factors or if you see an ugly duckling on your skin, get a total skin examination by a board certified dermatologist.

Remember, May for melanoma month!
