Studies have shown that the number of skin cancer patients will double by 2040 AD.
According to a study published in the journal JAMA Dermatology, an additional 68 percent of the world’s population will not be able to save their lives from melanoma.
Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. One in five skin cancer patients develops melanoma. 325,000 new cases of melanoma were reported in 2020 and 57,000 died according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
In most countries of the world, women under the age of 50 and then men are at high risk of getting this cancer.
Melanoma is caused by harmful UV rays from the sun. Melanoma cancer is also a hereditary disease, which is passed from one generation to the next.
Melanoma causes black spots or dark patches on the skin. Gradually, its size begins to increase.
Some of the symptoms of melanoma are prolonged healing of skin lesions, enlargement or discoloration of skin cells, itchy skin, bleeding, red spots on the skin, and red lumps on the skin.
If such symptoms appear, the doctor should be contacted immediately and the disease should be treated. Melanoma detected in time is treatable.
To avoid melanoma, the body should not be exposed to direct sunlight. In addition to using sunscreen, you should stay away from equipment that emits UV rays.
