Final Thoughts

Although many risk factors for melanoma can be avoided, it is important to keep in mind that avoiding risk factors does not guarantee that you will not get the disease. Also, most people with a particular risk factor for melanoma do not actually get it. Some people are more sensitive than others to factors that can cause melanoma. Talk to your doctor about melanoma prevention methods that might be effective for you.
