FORMER PRO FOOTBALL COACH BILL COWHER TELLS MEN “NO EXCUSES” WHEN IT COMES TO GETTING SCREENED FOR MELANOMA
New survey shows one in six men don’t want to get a skin cancer screening because they are afraid
of what they will hear
Second year of Melanoma Exposed™ offers free skin cancer screenings at pro football events nationwide
New York, New York (April 23, 2013) – A new survey shows that when it comes to getting screened for skin cancer, one in six men avoid going for fear of the results they will receive. This may be one reason why men are almost twice as likely as women to die from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, and nearly two-thirds don’t see a point in going to a dermatologist unless something is wrong, even while incidence rates continue to rise. This can often be too late, as melanoma is almost always curable if caught early and treated properly, but it gets much harder to treat in advanced stages.
