Protecting yourself from the deadliest skin cancer, melanoma, has never been easier or closer to home. MoleSafe, which offers the world’s most advanced skin cancer screenings, has offices conveniently located in Millburn, NJ. Local residents are urged to educate themselves on their risk and schedule a screening appointment for themselves and their loved ones today, before a melanoma can spread and possibly take your life.

Melanoma is a deadly cancer.  According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate for melanoma in an advanced stage is only 15 percent.  However, if melanoma is detected and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes, the five-year survival rate is 99 percent. The earlier you take advantage of the available medical protocols for early detection, the better your chance of surviving.

Individuals with a family history of melanoma can face an increased risk of developing it themselves. Other risk factors include having more than 50 moles, an indoor or outdoor tanning history, and having naturally light hair, light eyes and/or light skin. People who do not use sunscreen, people who have suffered one or more blistering sunburns, people who have had transplants and have been on immunosuppressive medications and people with dysplastic nevus syndrome are also at heightened risk for developing melanoma.

In the investment world, the hare is someone who thinks he or she is great at selecting “winners” and avoiding “losers.” The ...
