Watch out for Bob Marley Disease!
“In May, the month of screening and prevention of skin cancer, we would like to draw particular attention to melanoma that develops before our eyes but is very neglected. By saying a tiny stain, we can neglect many developments in the skin. A changing stain or ‘me’ should definitely go to the doctor. It is very important to observe ourselves. It is very easy to understand these changes with the help of a full-length mirror or hand mirror. If the operation is decided when we go to the doctor, let’s not be afraid of it.
The phrase “if a knife is worth it, it spreads” is an absolutely wrong belief among the people. If surgical intervention is decided and removed, life will be saved. Let’s be aware of this. Let’s be protected from the sun. Let’s take precautions such as clothes, hats, glasses or protective cream while going out in the sun. Let’s never sleep in the sun. Let’s stay away from the solarium. Melanoma; It can occur anywhere on the body that is skin or even semi-skin.
