MELANOMA FACTS:

Did you know? Melanoma is a deadly skin cancer, and there are over 1 million Americans living with melanoma.
 
Florida has the second-highest incidence of melanoma in the United States. 

Sun protection and early detection are key to preventing melanoma.

What do YOU need to be on the look-out for? The ABCDE’s of melanoma are a good place to start!

             Asymmetry - one half of the mole does not match the other
             Border - the edges are irregular, ragged, notched, blurred; normal moles are   
                             round or oval
             Color - the mole is not evenly colored: it may include shades of brown or 
                          black, or patches or pink, red, white or blue.
             Diameter - the spot is larger than 6mm across
             Evolving - the mole is changing in size
