What is Melanoma?

Melanoma is the most serious skin cancer and can significantly jeopardize your long-term health. If gone undetected, melanomas can spread rapidly to other parts of the body. Once melanomas spread, they can often be fatal.

 

How is Melanoma treated?

Fortunately, early detection is possible if you learn the warning signs and perform a regular self-examination of your skin. If you see any moles that meet the criteria for this skin cancer, call Charleston Dermatology for a skin examination immediately. Feel free to stop by our office or order a free copy of our Skin Cancer Self-Examination guide.
