ABCDE Melanoma

Early diagnosis of melanoma is the key to ensuring a favorable prognosis.


The identification and excision of melanomas in early stages ensures a good patient prognosis but requires monitoring and thorough skin examination periodically. In fact, survival rates are around 90-95% in cases of non-invasive melanomas. However, in their infiltrating forms melanoma has high mortality rates, with survival rates lower than 20% when it has spread to other organs


A regular physical examination by a dermatologist ensures early identification of malignant or premalignant lesions
