The rising rate of MM reflects damage to the skin that has been done in the past. If a difference is to be seen prospectively, we must use protection (sunscreens) and have suspicious areas evaluated early in their course so that MM can be treated when curable. Until further research yields a cure for advanced MM, the above approach remains the first line of defense in the fight against this cancer.
