May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
Every year the American Academy of Dermatology encourages increased awareness of skin cancer during their SPOT Skin Cancer campaign. This year their campaign highlights the fact that women are nine times more likely than men to notice melanoma (a type of skin cancer) on others.
Skin cancer, including melanoma, is a very treatable condition, especially when detected early. The American Academy of Dermatology wants you to “Check Your Partner. Check Yourself.” See the infographic below for more information on how to detect signs of skin cancer on your partner or click here to print out a PDF copy.
