As we wrap up May melanoma awareness month, we thought it would be beneficial to stress the importance of properly protecting your skin as the temperatures rise.  While typically associated with adults, this relentless form of cancer can affect people of all age groups.  It’s something that should be taken seriously among anyone who spends significant time in the sun, especially those accustomed to tanning, extensive outdoor activities, or those with a family history of melanoma.  The initial signs can be tricky to diagnose, and should always be evaluated by a skilled dermatologist if you have any suspicions.

At Helendale Dermatology and Medical Spa, we specialize in the treatment and prevention of melanoma through a wide array of medical procedures and specialty products.  Here are just a few of the reasons to get in touch for more information or any unique skin discolorations that have you concerned.
