Experts Discuss the Dangers of Melanoma

Doctors Shed Light on Melanoma, the Most Dangerous Form of Skin Cancer

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and as part of Forefront Dermatology’s public education campaign about this deadly form of skin cancer, a few of our dermatologists in Michigan appeared on television to discuss the dangers associated with melanoma and how to best to protect against it. In Grand Rapids, doctors Diana Castanon and Dara Spearman were featured on ABC 13’s Take 5 & Company show. In Marquette, Dr. Jennifer Baldwin was featured on ABC 10 News. Both of these interviews discussed how important it is to wear sunscreen with a minimum protection of SPF 30 to protect against the sun’s deadly rays, even on overcast days as UV rays can penetrate clouds and damage skin. In addition to these preventative steps, it’s important to visit a dermatologist at least once a year for a skin cancer screening and catch the warning signs before it’s too late. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer because of how quickly it spreads from the skin to surrounding organs. All Forefront Dermatology offices offer skin cancer screenings.
