Melanoma on the Rise
Statistics from the Associated Press 5/6/2007
- One in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.
- In Oregon, the reported rate of that form of cancer, melanoma, was 23% higher in 2003 than the national average.
- Oregon continues to have one of the highest rates of melanoma.
- The number of melanoma cases increased the most in children between the ages of 10-19.
The good news is that melanoma is very treatable in children and teens, especially if it is detected early.
