Doctors recommend that anyone over age 40 should get their skin checked by a dermatologist each year.

In honor of Melanoma Awareness Month, Just Believe is donating sunscreen dispensers across Marquette County.

"Melanoma Monday serves as a way to encourage everyone to practice safe-sun behaviors and conduct regular skin self-examinations", said Farhat. But doctors say not taking the proper precautions is risky, especially for children. They give you 4-15 times as much UV rays as the sun in the same amount of time.

While you may check for suspicious moles on your face, arms, chest, and other easy to see and frequently exposed areas, melanoma - the most deadly form of skin cancer - can show up anywhere. Many clinics across the US are offering free skin screenings.

In fact, it's estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.

E is for Evolving: The spot looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color. "A lot of young women visit tanning beds", said O'Donnell.

When it comes to prevention, Dr. Kulkarni says to try and stay out of the sun when it's strongest. About 91,270 new melanomas will be diagnosed in 2018, according to estimates from the American Cancer Society, and more than 9,000 people will die of the disease.

Experts say folks should be putting on sunscreen every day! And reapply; if we're sweating or swimming, we want to reapply ideally every two hours.
