Why melanoma is so deadly for men, and why it doesn’t have to be
As his patient sat on the examining table, dermatologist Jeremy Brauer explained the pathology report, letting him know that the lesion on his chest was skin cancer and that minor surgery would be required to remove it. “I’d like to try to get this done before the...
Is Basal Cell Carcinoma Serious? Let’s Ask Hugh Jackman.
Hugh Jackman knows a lot about skin cancer. Over the years, the Australian actor has had several basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) removed. In April 2023, Jackman posted an Instagram video after having two new biopsies on lesions that his dermatologist...
May Is Skin Cancer Awareness Month!
With over 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year, skin cancer is America’s most common cancer. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable cancers. By sharing facts about the dangers of unprotected sun exposure and...
Merck-Moderna Vaccine Helps Keep Patients Free From Skin Cancer
Adding a personalized cancer vaccine to the blockbuster drug Keytruda kept more melanoma patients in remission than the immune therapy alone, co-developers Moderna Inc. and Merck & Co. said in their first detailed presentation of a key study....
Skin Cancer Isn’t Limited To The Skin: 7 Body Parts Where It Can Develop
Skin cancer is a debilitating disease caused by the growth of cells in a disorderly manner. The multiplying cells--especially cancerous ones--can spread to other parts of the body through a process called metastasis. To scientists, the branched-out cells look exactly...
Melanoma Screening: Consensus Statement Offers Greater Clarity
Roxanne Nelson, RN, BSN; March 15, 2023 Detecting melanoma early, when it is easier to treat, remains a "paramount goal," but guidelines surrounding optimal melanoma screening practices and diagnostic evaluations need greater clarity, according to the...
