Counting the number of moles on your right arm may be a quick way to figure out your melanoma risk.

May 3, 2016

Melanoma a deadly form of skin cancer.

Melanoma a deadly form of skin cancer.   If you suffered a delay in diagnosis of melanoma, contact our military malpractice lawyers for help.

British researchers have found that the number of moles on your right arm can predict your total mole count.  Specifically, they discovered that more than 11 moles on your right arm means you may have 100 moles on your entire body. And experts have long agreed that the higher your total mole count, the higher your risk of the deadly skin cancer.

Monday was “Melanoma Monday” — the first Monday in May as the kick off to Melanoma month— so it’s time to check yourself. Melanoma is not the most common form of skin cancer, but it is the deadliest. One in 50 Americans will develop malignant melanoma and around 10,000 people will die from it this year. And it’s not just a disease that affects the elderly. In fact, melanoma is the most common form of skin cancer in young adults between the ages of 25 and 29.

If a suspicious mole is removed early and diagnosed quickly, melanoma can be cured.  However, if the mole is not removed early, or the biopsy is misread as being just a harmless mole, the results can be fatal.
