Melanoma is now the most common form of cancer for young adults 15-29 years old. If caught early – when it is confined to the surface of your skin – Melanoma is curable. The prognosis worsens as it grows deeper into your body and affects your vital organs. Get your skin checked by a dermatologist on a regular basis. Pay attention to changes in your moles. Melanoma can occur anywhere on the body, including places “where the sun don’t shine” – it usually shows up on the trunk, neck, limbs, fingers, and toes. People with fair skin are especially at risk – but anyone can get it and it doesn’t discriminate by age.
