Melanoma: Why You Need to Schedule a Skin Cancer Screening Now by Margaret Steck
I had a scare one summer when my dermatologist diagnosed me with malignant melanoma on my shin. Not only did I need surgery to remove a large piece of skin on my leg, I also had three lymph nodes removed and tested to see if the melanoma had spread. Luckily, we caught it early.
Having gone through this, I can't stress enough the importance of seeing a dermatologist once a year for a skin check. To me, it's as important as a yearly mammogram and could mean the difference between life and death.
