I will post another one later now that I have been to the doctor's again and learned a little more acbout my situation. Not a sob story for pity and please don't worry, I'm going to be absolutely fine -- this video aims to encourage others who are a little suspicious of something on their skin to get to a dermatologist to check it out. Better safe than sorry! In case you're curious -- the very first biopsy was read wrong and WAS melanoma. So I walked around with cancer for at least a year not knowing I had it. Oye. Cancer-free after my second surgery in Sept. and going for skin checks every 3 months! Haven't needed another biopsy yet... as of Feb 2013, that is! GO TO THE DERMATOLOGIST IF YOU EVER ARE WORRIED ABOUT SOMETHING! Thanks for watching!!! Disclaimer: I earned this melanoma with my own sad, sad skin. Not a PR sample ;) Go to the dermatologist!

The Faces of Pediatric Melanoma
Childhood melanoma affects kids of all ages and all races. The impact that this disease can have on the lives of these children and their families is profound. Today, we hear from some of the children who have been diagnosed with melanoma. They describe their experiences and methods used for prevention and detection. http://www.mdanderson.org/patient-and-cancer-information/cancer-information/cancer-types/childhood-melanoma/index.html
What is the risk of my child's birthmark becoming Skin Cancer in future? - Dr. Pavan Murdeshwar
Birthmarks can be the congenital moles or the vascular lesions or the giant congenital melanocytic nevus. In general all these congenital moles have a potency to go for a cancerous situation, especially the formation of melanoma, it is a dangerous kind of skin cancer. The risk in the congenital moles increases with the number of the moles as well as the size of the moles, the maximum being in an individual who have more than 50 number of moles or an individual who has moles which is more than 6 mm in diameter. So in such conditions monitoring is the most essential thing where a person or a doctor who is looking at such a condition is to monitor the size of the moles or the asymmetry of the borders, the shape of the moles, as well as the surrounding pigmentation and any discharges, even the sensation variation in the mole matter s lot, the vascular lesions do not pose any potency to go for any malignancy as such, but the entity of giant congenital melanocytic nevus has a high potency to go for malignancy. This is one entity where a newborn child will be having a large mole of the size of more than 20 cms. So such an entity is always to be treated early in the child hood, the whole thing to be removed d so that none of the part of that mole goes for a melanoma conversion. It is always better to remember that a mole is not a beauty mark always.

14 early warning signs that cancer is growing in your body
DISCLAIMER ON COMMENTS & ADVICE GIVEN Please note that the below information is designed to provide general information on the topics presented. It is provided with the understanding that the expert is not engaged in rendering any medical or professional services in the information provided below. The information provided should not be used as a substitute for professional services. 14 early warning signs that cancer is growing in your body Here are signs that are commonly ignored: 1. Wheezing or shallow breathing If you ask lung cancer patients what the first thing they noticed was, the majority would say it was their difficulty with breathing, or trouble catching their breath. 2. Chronic coughing or pain in the chest area Chest pain, incessant coughing, and even pain that reaches down the arms are symptoms of leukemia and lung tumors. 3. Frequently having fevers or infections White blood cells help our body to fight off infections and foreign invaders. Leukemia is a type of blood cell cancer that begins in bone marrow and causes the body to produce abnormal white blood cells, which reduces the effectiveness of its ability to fight infections. 4. Trouble with swallowing If you have difficulty swallowing, you may want to get checked for preliminary esophageal or throat cancer. It is also associated with lung cancer as well. 5. Lymph nodes that are swollen or lumps on the skin of your neck, underarm, or groin Any drastic changes in your lymphatic system should be carefully observed. These changes could be warning signs of lymphatic cancer. 6. Over-bruising and excessive bleeding When platelets and red blood cells act abnormally, there becomes excessive bruising and bleeding. This symptom can be a sign of leukemia. 7. Constant fatigue Feeling weakness in your body, and constant fatigue are symptoms of several different kinds of cancer. You’ll need to examine these symptoms in conjunction with other ones as well. As a general rule, if you ever feel exhasuted to where you can barely move without any physical reason, see your doctor. 8. Bloating in the abdomen or localized weight gain Women with ovarian cancer reported having “inexplicable abdominal bloating.” They said this bloating and weight gain happened suddenly, and appeared, disappeared, and reappeared for a long time. 9. Loss of appetite and feeling full This symptom is a warning sign for ovarian cancer as well. A vast majority of women said they “just couldn’t eat,” even if it had been a while since their last meal. 10. Pain the pelvis or abdominal area Leukemia and ovarian cancer can cause abdominal and pelvic pain. 11. Bleeding from the rectum or blood in stool This is a symptom commonly found in those diagnosed with colon cancer. If you ever notice blood in your stool, it is advisable to schedule a visit to your physician. 12. Rapid and unexplained weight loss Rapidly losing weight is a warning sign of digestive and colon cancers. It is also a sign that cancer has infected the liver. It you lose your appetite and stop producing a normal amount of waste, see your doctor.. 13. Digestive pain or stomachache having stomach cramps or frequent upset stomach pain may indicate colon or stomach cancer. 14. A red, sore, or swollen breast These are signs of breast cancer and should be examined by a physician. 15. Changes to the nipple If the nipple starts to look flattened, inverted, or turned sideways, see your doctor about possible breast cancer. Women diagnosed with breast cancer say the first thing they noticed was the changes to their nipples. 16. Abnormally heavy or painful periods/Bleeding in between cycles Several women say this is the number one symptom of endometrial or uterine cancer. Request a transvaginal ultrasound if your menstrual cycle has any significant changes. 17. Puffiness in the face Lung cancer patients report noticing “puffiness, swelling, or redness” in the face. This happens because lung tumors tend to block blood vessels, which stops oxygenated blood from flowing to your neck and face. 18. A sore that doesn’t heal Get to know the various kinds of skin cancer. Melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma are three common types. Check your skin for odd growths or spots. 19. Changes in fingernails Liver cancer, skin cancer, and lung cancer all show warning signs through the finger nails. Black spots, or lines, whitening and thickening around the edges, and “clubbing” are all signs you should pay attention to. 20. Pain localized in the lumbar spine or lower right side Several patients diagnose with liver and breast cancer cancer report this as one of their first signs. Regardless if you are a male or a female, it’s vital to pay attention to any abnormal changes in your body, as well as your energy levels. This will help to detect any signs of cancer while it’s still early. The faster you realize something isn’t quite right, the faster you can start to take the proper steps to heal your body.

Mayo Clinic: Have Fun in the Sun, But Be Sun Smart - Skin Cancer Prevention PSA
Mayo Clinic research shows skin cancer is on the rise among young people, even teenagers. It can be deadly. Because many teens and their parents think melanoma won't happen to people under 20, cases in children often aren't detected as early as physicians would like. To get the message out to kids of all ages about the importance of skin cancer prevention, Mayo created this cartoon-style public service announcement, "Have Fun in the Sun, But Be Sun Smart." In the PSA, two animal moles enjoy a sunny day at the beach. One is protected from the sun. The other isn't, gets sunburn that ruins his day and develops a skin mole that sends him to the doctor, who explains the danger of skin cancer and the importance of sun smarts: using sunscreen, skipping tanning beds, seeking shade and getting spots checked. The PSA is available at different lengths for radio and broadcast, Internet and other use. For more information on the PSA and how media, health agencies and educators can use it, please go to the Mayo Clinic News Network at http://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org.

Dying for a Tan - Australia
May 2005 For many, sizzling in the midday sun is one of the delights of summer. But as teenagers continue to ignore the sun safety message, more and more young people are developing skin cancer. "It's a really hard thing to be told you're going to die," confides Steven Nielson. He was 20 when he was first diagnosed with skin cancer. Now, the cancer has spread to his spine and he's nearing the end of this life. Benjamin Foley was 16 when he was first diagnosed and Renee Marchment 24. "We see so many people who are totally unaware of the risks they're taking by sunbathing," states Prof John Thompson. Many refuse to wear a hat or sunscreen. As Ben states: "I thought I was invincible from the sun. I thought skin cancer only happened to older people. I was wrong."

How does a normal melanocyte turn cancerous| People Get skin cancer|Melanoma sign and symptoms
Although there are several different types of skin cancer, most don't become life-threatening because they aren't likely to spread to other parts of the body. Unfortunately, melanoma is different. If not caught early, melanoma can spread from the skin to other organs — often with deadly results. And this serious skin cancer is no longer considered just an older person's disease. Rates are on the rise — especially among people in their teens and 20s — and research shows that the increase may be partly related to ultraviolet (UV) sun exposure during childhood. In the United States alone, the percentage of people who develop melanoma has more than doubled in the past four decades. If there's any good news about melanoma, it's this: You have the power to greatly lower your family's risk of getting it by protecting kids from the sun, paying attention to the moles on their skin, and making sure they know from an early age that it's important to take sun safety seriously. Melanoma is a type of cancer that begins in the melanocytes — the cells deep within the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) whose function is to produce melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color. Dark-skinned people have cells that naturally produce a lot of melanin, while fair-skinned people produce much less.Sometimes, though, melanocytes can stop working normally. Because of a genetic change (mutation), they can begin growing out of control, sticking together to form lesions or tumors, crowding out healthy cells, and damaging surrounding tissue. This condition is known as cancer.How People Get It How does a normal melanocyte turn cancerous? Researchers believe it's probably a combination of genetic and behavioral factors. But one of the most important common contributors is UV sun damage. Cells that have been damaged by UV rays are more likely to become cancerous over time. And though you might think that ongoing exposure — being in the sun because you work outside, for example — would increase someone's risk of melanoma, it's actually occasional exposure that has the potential to do the most damage. So short bouts of bad, blistering sunburn that a child may get during a day at the beach or the park or even on the family vacation may be more harmful than lower-level, everyday exposure. Among teens and young adults who are diagnosed with melanoma, most are tanning bed users who are exposed to "concentrated" doses of UV rays. Just one tanning session can make someone more likely to develop skin cancer. Of course, there may be other reasons for the increase in overexposure to harmful rays. The thinning of the ozone layer or clothing styles that expose more skin also may have contributed to the risk. And it's thought that as people live longer and become more are aware of the disease, more cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed.Squamous cell carcinoma. This type of skin cancer is not as dangerous as melanoma but may spread to other parts of the body if not treated. It grows over some months and appears on skin most often exposed to the sun. It can be a thickened, red, scaly spot that may bleed easily, crust or ulcerate.There are three major types of skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma. The first two skin cancers are grouped together as non-melanoma skin cancers. Other unusual types of skin cancer include Merkel cell tumors and dermato fibrosarcoma protuberances.f melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable, but if it is not, the cancer can advance and spread to other parts of the body, where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal. While it is not the most common of the skin cancers, it causes the most deaths signs and Symptoms Many melanomas start out as a mole or a bump on the skin. Of course, not every mole is cancerous — far from it. What's more telling is whether a mole has undergone any kind of recent change, whether in size, shape, or color

Skin Cancer Learn for Children and Kids | EDUKID Learning
Skin cancers are cancers that arise from the skin. They are due to the development of abnormal cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are three main types of skin cancers: basal-cell skin cancer (BCC), squamous-cell skin cancer (SCC) and melanoma.[1] The first two, along with a number of less common skin cancers, are known as nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC). Basal-cell cancer grows slowly and can damage the tissue around it but is unlikely to spread to distant areas or result in death.

Young Women at High Risk for Melanoma
"I like being tan, I think everybody does," says Gabriella Soto-Velez. It may be the Holy Grail for young women: achieving the perfect bronze bod. "Socially there's a trend, TV shows like Jersey Shore or whatever, they want to be tan and so people try to emulate that lifestyle," says Soto-Velez. On college campuses, the fashionable flesh tone may be 'to die for' but are too tan teens willing to die for it? Melanoma cases are on the rise, with young women being prime targets fro this dangerous cancer. "The melanoma skin cancer has the greatest ability to spread to other organs and other parts of the body and when it does there's a much higher mortality rate," says Dr. Drew Kreegel, a plastic surgeon with Lee Memorial Health System. Researchers analyzed decades of data and found melanoma rates in women between the ages of 18 and 34 increased eight-fold between 1970 and 2009. It's believed a contributing factor is indoor tanning salons. "The difference is and this is a key difference, people who use sun tan beds typically use them year round," says Dr. Kreegel. Skin cancers show up years after exposure, so experts advice caution in tanning and stress the importance of sunscreen. "The best rule of thumb is to reapply it after 60 to 90 minutes," says Dr. Kreegel. For people who still crave the sun-kissed look, there's nothing wrong with a fake-bake, as in spray tan.
