Advanced Melanoma: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Prevention

The skin is the largest and fastest-growing organ, and is a very important barrier to protect against infection and other external factors. Having an understanding of how skin cancers, such as melanoma, form can help you take precautions against typical risk factors and monitor for any signs of cancer.
