Fight with Style?


While I hate that I know way too much about Melanoma - I do like that it's getting more and more attention.  Sadly it's getting attention for the wrong reasons.  Like the fact that Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29.  See more from Melanoma Research Foundation


Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and worldwide.

  • The American Cancer Society estimates that the risk of developing invasive melanoma in the United States is 1 in 41 and 1 in 61 for men and women, respectfully. This averages out to approximately a 1 in 50 chance of developing melanoma throughout your lifetime. 
  • The incidence of people under 30 developing melanoma is increasing faster than any other demographic group, soaring by 50 percent in young women since 1980. 
  • Melanoma primarily affects individuals in the prime years of life, is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old. 
  • Although melanoma is most common in Caucasians, melanoma can strike men and women of all ages, all races and all skin types. The mean age for diagnosis of melanoma is 50, while for many other cancers it is 65-70 years old. 

So back to the point - There is another message about what not's hot - Melanoma!  Thank you Ryan Reynolds and My Style for spreading the news!
