today in family health it's melanoma monday. melanoma accounts for less than 5% of skin caps but causes the most skin cancer deaths. here to talk about that is dr. vein that from the medical group. thank you for joining us. less than 5% of all skin cancer, but the deadliest. why is that? who should be worried about melanoma? >> there are a couple of factors. one is most melanomas lack obvious symptoms so there is a delay in diagnosis. by the time they are captured, at times they can have invaded deeper into the skin layers. the deeper the higher the risk melanoma cells could break off and end up in an organ. that is why it is distinct from other types of skin cancer. >> who should worry about
12:15 pm
melanoma? just people with fair skin or should everyone worry? >> everyone, actually is at risk for melanoma but certain subgroups are at higher risk for developing this type of skin caps. those include lighter skinned people, those over the age of 50, those who have additional risk factors like a family history of melanoma. and also the number of moles a person has puts them at a risk for melanoma. the average person might have 20 moles but the risk goes up as the number of moles goes up. >> and you can be taught to do a self skin exam. how often? >> we recommend patients do self skin exams at least on a monthly basis. often times they'll have to get a spouse or significant other to help monitor their back. the back is a very common area to actually develop it. so if you have no one looking there it will be hard to detect. >> stay out of the sun and if you go in, use an spf of 30 or higher. that should help a lot?
