March – Melanoma Month

Melanoma is a serious form of skin cancer that begins in cells known as melanocytes. While it is less common than basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), melanoma is far more dangerous because of its ability to spread to other organs more rapidly if it not treated at an early stage.
