Healthwatch: Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Procedures

“Malignant melanoma is a deadly skin cancer that dermatologists say is rising at frightening levels. “There is no chemotherapy for it. It’s a really fatal disease and especially in young women,” says Dr. Michelle S. Green of Lenox-Hill Hospital in this CBS News report.”

“The good news is that melanomas and all skin cancers are very curable if found at an early stage, and that’s easy. They’re out in the open, but you have to look for them everywhere. Their back, their rear end, their feet, you know, behind their ears – these are places that are overlooked, even by internists on a physical exam,” says Dr. Green.”

Dr. Green discusses skin cancer and sun-safe measures in this must-watch video.
