Melanoma is a serious type of skin cancer that takes the lives of nearly 10,000 people every year. As long as you apply sunscreen regularly and monitor abnormal moles, you can avoid the serious risks associated with melanoma.
In this video, an Air Force pilot named Taylor Todd discusses his experience with melanoma. A mole on the top of Taylor’s head turned out to be cancerous, and Taylor had to have the mole and surrounding area completely removed. Taylor used to be hesitant to put on sunscreen, but now he applies it frequently.
