HEALTH ALERT -- Monday was National Melanoma Day and doctors are raising awareness for one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer. Every year, more than 70 thousand people are diagnosed with the disease. Doctors say people have a better chance of survival if the cancer is caught in its earliest stages.
For every 30 days that pass without surgery, the risk of dying increases. People who have more than 50 moles, are fair skinned, and/or have a family history of the disease are most at risk.
If you have questions, consult your doctor.
