Can using sunscreen help prevent melanoma, one of the deadliest forms of cancer? Conversely, does using sunscreen increase the risk of developing melanoma? That's the controversy researchers across the country have been attempting to resolve. It is an urgent matter: in Western countries in particular, melanoma is increasing faster than any other cancer. In the U.S., the number of new cases of melanoma has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Martin Weinstock, MD, who works in the dermatoepidemiology unit of the VA Medical Center in Providence, has been studying the relationship for years. In 1999, he published an article in the

What is it?
What's it look like?

Melanoma takes many different forms. The most common is known as "superficial spreading" melanoma and usually begins as a tan spot that may slowly grow and change. Another type of melanoma is called "nodular" melanoma and usually develops in a black, blue or white mark that rapidly grows into a bump. To find out if your mole could be a melanoma, a doctor will need to examine you. If your mole is suspicious appearing (see The ABCDEs of melanoma to see what makes a mole suspicious), your doctor will likely take a small sample of it (biopsy) and/or refer you to a surgeon to do so.

Prof. Camillo O. DI CICCO
Melanoma is the most aggressive of malignant cutaneous tumours. Because cases presenting with lymphonode involvement and distant metastases carry a very poor prognosis (50% and 20% respectively alive in 5 years) while on the contrary those presenting without evident lymphonode involvement have a much better survival (60% alive in 5 years).
Survival is moreover directly related to the depth of tumour invasion:
Melanoma thickness - 10 yr survival
< 1.0 mm. - 90%
1.0 / 1.49 mm. - 78%
1.50 / 4.00 mm. - 65%
> 4.00 mm. - 40%
It is therefore extremely important a malignant melanoma early diagnosis according to the ABCD rules listed on page 3.

"Melanoma: Watch Your Back" Article authored by
Anastasia Petro, MD, Jennifer Schwartz, MD
These days it's not only the suspicious stranger lurking behind your back that you have to watch. In the United States, you are more likely to run into trouble from a melanoma on your back, the most common location of this potentially deadly skin cancer.
Each year over a million people in the United States alone will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Of these, approximately 80,000 will be afflicted with melanoma. The incidence or the number of new cases of melanoma per year continues to rise. One in seventy-one persons born in the year 2001 will develop melanoma over their lifetime. Although it is not the most common skin cancer, melanoma is the most aggressive and has the ability to spread to other parts of the body.
Melanoma is a malignant tumor that is made up of abnormal melanocytes. Normal melanocytes, which reside in everybody's skin, are cells that produce a brown pigment called melanin. Melanin is the major determinant of a person's skin color and also serves as the body's own natural sunscreen. A melanoma develops when certain melanocytes are no longer able to control their own growth and continue to multiply at a fast rate. This phenomenon occurs when melanocytes undergo significant damage. Too much exposure to sunlight, especially enough to cause blistering or peeling sunburns during childhood, can result in enough cellular injury to cause a melanoma as well as other skin cancers. In addition, there are other factors that make a person more susceptible to developing a melanoma. These include:

At The MOLE Clinic, my skin was assessed visually, then a couple of moles were photographed using a camera with high magnification. The computer then compared the images to a database to assess if action was needed. Thankfully, despite my love of sunshine, I was lucky – this time.
I give The MOLE Clinic 10 out of 10.
It’s an impressive system, and I found it very reassuring.’

Nonprofit organization providing information and support.
The Massachusetts Melanoma Foundation was created in 1999 to combat the rising rate of melanoma and melanoma deaths in Massachusetts. The Foundation has the stated goals of working to eliminate melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. We also assist patients and families currently affected with invasive skin cancer. A Board of Directors and a Medical Advisory Board comprised of health care professionals, business people, and corporations work for the Foundation on a voluntary basis. Funds raised support educational and research efforts aimed at preventing and treating melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer.
The MMF was founded in 1999 by Marilyn and Mel Rubin, our Chairpersons, following the tragic loss of their son to mela-
noma. Since then, they have been dedicated to helping tens of thousands of people to lead long and productive lives.

Each year in the United States, more than 53,600 people learn they have melanoma. In some parts of the world, especially among Western countries, melanoma is becoming more common every year. In the United States, for example, the percentage of people who develop melanoma has more than doubled in the past 30 years. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has written this booklet (NIH Publication No. 02-1563) to help people with melanoma and their families and friends better understand this disease. We hope others will read it as well to learn more about melanoma. This booklet discusses risks and prevention, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care. It also has information about resources and sources of support to help patients cope with melanoma.

Five-and-a-half years after being diagnosed with stage III metastatic melanoma, Jerrod Sessler is healthy and disease-free. “It’s been a big year for us,” Sessler says. “No one in the family has been sick in over five years.”
Melanoma patients at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) will be treated at the Multidisciplinary Melanoma Clinic by a medical team with a wealth of experience in the medical and surgical care of melanoma patients. One of the surgeons treating melanoma patients brought the sentinel lymph node biopsy technique to the Northwest, and is by far the most experienced physician with this technique in the area. Another surgeon is developing new methods to treat melanoma that has spread to internal organs, by using radiofrequency energy to destroy the melanoma cells.

The rate of basal cell and squamous cell cancers rose from 13 per 100,000 women in the late 1970's to 32 per 100,000 in 2003. This indicates tanning is still very popular and will show rising rates of melanoma in the near future. See the article in full by the author from the Mayo Clinic by clicking on read more.
