Melanoma Monday is the first Monday in May. The Melanoma Monday campaign, sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology, helps raise public awareness about malignant melanoma, a potentially fatal form of skin cancer, and encourages early detection through screening. As the month of May is also National Skin Cancer Awareness month, free skin cancer screenings can also 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.
