  • Skin Cancer Awareness Month

    Posted by Upstate Dermatology on May.01.17 in Skin Care

    May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

    The AAD’s new SPOTme® video, “Check Him Out,” uses humor to show how men and women sometimes see things a little differently before encouraging women to regularly check their partner’s skin for the signs of skin cancer. 

    The American Academy of Dermatology’s 2017 SPOT Skin Cancer™ campaign — “Check Your Partner. Check Yourself” — is encouraging women to check both their partners and themselves for signs of skin cancer. When detected early, skin cancer — including melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer —  is highly treatable. Research has shown that women are nine times more likely than men to notice melanoma on others, which means women could help save their partners’ lives by helping them spot skin cancer. This is especially important for men over 50 as they have an increased risk of developing melanoma compared to the general population.

    If you notice any suspicious spots on your skin or your partner’s skin, or anything changing, itching or bleeding, call us to make an appointment.
