Statistics show that one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime and one in 50 Americans will develop melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. While these statistics are frightening, the good news is that skin cancer is treatable and beatable with early detection. May is Melanoma Awareness Month and a great time to Prevent. Detect. Live. Early-stage melanomas can often be treated effectively with surgery alone, but more advanced cancers often require other treatments. Sometimes more than one type of treatment is used. If you have any concerns or questions about melanoma or any form of skin cancer, call the offices of Western Maryland Dermatology/McCagh, Roberts and Herring at 301-777-7900 or online at http://www.westernmddermatologylasercenter.com.
