Rising Melanoma Rates

By Michael J. Freeman, M.D., PA

Rising Melanoma RatesEven as rates of most other cancers are declining, the rate at which people develop melanoma continues to rise yearly. According to a recent report from the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control at the CDC, the rates of this deadliest form of skin cancer have doubled in the United States over the past three decades. The report always states that, if no new efforts are made to stem this tide, there will be 112,000 new cases of melanoma in 2030. By comparison, in 2011, there were 65,647 cases of melanoma diagnosed in this country, and 9,128 deaths occurred. By implementing a comprehensive skin cancer prevention program, about 20% of cases of melanoma could be prevented between 2020 and 2030.
