Evidence is patchy on whether UV emitting nail drying lamps increase the risk of skin cancer

Monday, May 7, is Melanoma Monday to bring attention to skin cancer - the most common cancer in the US and the deadliest.

Melanomas are most commonly found on the chest and back in men and on the legs in women, according to the American Cancer Society, but they're also likely to show up on the neck and face in both sexes.

The service will be provided at their locations in Miramar Beach, Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, and Panama City Beach.

When caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable.

"Melanoma is the most common cancer for young adults, 25 to 29 years old, and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents", experts from The Center for Dermatology and Plastic Surgery said.

Beyond the block, the American Academy of Dermatology says you should stay covered with clothing, a hat, and sunglasses, and stay in the shade whenever possible.

"This is why regular skin checks by a doctor are important and it is important for you to notice anything different about your skin, too", she said.

"I would burn until I peeled and that was a weekly occurrence", Breslin says.

De. Sax says the easiest way to remember what to look for when checking yourself for melanoma is through the ABCD and Es of melanoma. Normal moles have smooth round borders.

D is for diameter.

Melanomas are usually greater than 6mm (the size of a pencil eraser) when diagnosed, but they can be smaller.

"It is very much a preventable type of cancer, like many other smoking-related cancers", said Dr. Jain. "It may resemble an acne bump or a pimple", said Dr. Adam Mattox, a dermatologist with University of Minnesota Health.
