There are several ways that you can prevent Melanoma from happening to you the first step starts with yourself. The first step is to take care of your skin. One step that many do not do is making sure when you are going out in the sun you use sunscreen and make sure it is waterproof. This is very important to do. Another way is by not going to a tanning bed. It has been known that tanning can also be a factor that can cause skin cancer.
Melanoma affects the body by causing the skin to turn a brown color. Melanoma is also very common in moles but tend to be darker in moles than in most areas of the body that may have Melanoma. Treatment for skin cancer varies depending on whether it has spread to other parts of the body or not. If it hasn’t than your doctor will suggest that you have the tumor removed through surgery immediately. The skin cancer and some of the surrounding tissue will be removed during this. It all depends on how deep the cancer has grown. If the Melanoma has spread to the lymph nodes then there is a good chance you will have to have those removed as well. You then will be given Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, or radiation treatment.
