Who threatens aggressive melanoma?
Melanoma is not formed from all of the pigment cells (melanocytes), but only of those that become cancerous. This is facilitated by frequent and prolonged exposure to the sun.
Dermatologist Caroline Kim from Boston as a result of observations of patients with melanoma found that those who had less than 50 moles, melanoma is more aggressive.
Patients with lots of moles, as a rule, know better about the risks of skin cancer, so early to go to the doctor. At the time, as people with moles a little, feel safer and pay less attention to the self-test.
Special attention should be paid to moles that have uneven edges, change their sizes or originally more than 6 cm in diameter. In identifying melanoma in its early stages it is well treatable.
