Melanoma Monday is observed the first Monday in May. Melanoma Monday is sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology, and helps raise public awareness about malignant melanoma, a potentially fatal form of skin cancer. Melanoma Monday also encourages early detection through screening.
As the month of May is also National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, free skin cancer screenings can be found nationwide all month long.
Early detection is key, as melanoma is almost 100% curable if discovered early. This May, consider participating in a free skin cancer screening.
The awareness color for Melanoma is Black.
