Melanoma rates are going up. More and more melanomas are diagnosed in young patients. This, partially, is caused by tanning bed exposure and multiple sunburns.
New techniques and devices are available to help doctors diagnose melanoma earlier. I am quoted regarding risks of melanoma in The Plain Dealer.
One of these devices is Melafind. This non-invasive device can help in two ways:
1. Detect melanoma and atypical moles.
2. Prevent unnecessary biopsies of benign moles.
