According to estimates provided by the American Cancer Society, more than 68,000 American men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer this year. 8,000+ will not survive their disease. In 2010, in the state of Maryland alone, 1,300 cases of melanoma are projected. Melanoma is the most life-threatening form of skin cancer, responsible for more than 70% of skin cancer-related deaths. You might be more prone to developing skin cancer if you have fair skin, are genetically pre-disposed (history of skin cancer in your family), or frequent, even irregular but intense, sun exposure. When you visit Dr. Oldham for your skin lesion/mole removal consultation, the doctor will first ask you about your skincare health history, including use of sunscreen, sun exposure and the frequency or infrequency of sun burn.
