If you do nothing for yourself and those you love today, watch this video. I too, have felt the heartache of seeing a young, vibrant woman in her early thirties die of melanoma. Tell the teens you know to avoid tanning beds like the plaque. Send this video to their facebook page. (I defy you to not cry.)
This month is Melanoma Month. Please make your appointment today for a complete skin exam! Melanoma is increasing exponentially not only in the United States, but worldwide, but death from melanoma can be prevented by early detection. I use a dermatoscope to detect early lesions and prevent unnecessary surgeries. We also look for signs of other diseases, such as diabetes, lupus, liver, heart and kidney problems, so it really is for everyone, and is recommended by The American Medical Association and The American Academy of Dermatology.
I just read a shocking set of statistics, which I would like to share with you. A recent online surveys of more than 3800 white, non-Hispanic females aged 14 to 22 years found the 81 percent of respondents had tanned outdoors frequently or occasionally during the last year, while more than 32% had used a tanning bed, 25% at least weekly! There is an epidemic of melanoma in the US and worldwide, and this kind of tanning will undoubtably lead to more skin cancers as well as deaths from melanoma.
