Readers found these treatments useful:

Reducing Your Risk

We can get melanoma through genetic predisposition, decreased immune response, and UV radiation. The most common source of UV radiation is sun exposure.

The simplest steps to reducing the likelihood of melanoma are to avoid long sun exposure. Hats, protective swimwear, like rash guards, and sunscreen are all helpful. It is recommended to wear sunscreen daily for your face.

If you work with UV radiation, then protective clothing and eyewear are necessary.

Taking Vitamin D is highly recommended.
