Checking your partner’s moles can save their life

New research shows the benefit of education about how to check someone’s skin for  abnormal moles can greatly increase the pick up rate of skin  ancers at an early, therefore more curable, stage. I have been convinced of this for years and try to always to educate my patients, using on line images of melanoma.

More needs to be done by health care providers and others to educate the public. Earlier diagnosis saves more lives than drugs like nivolumab and vemurafenib, and saves them cheaper.
