In the U.S., about 90,000 people are expected to be diagnosed this year, and about 10 percent of those people are expected to die from the disease. Of course, the easiest way to not die from Melanoma is to not develop it in the first place, but according to Dr. Jennifer Pennoyer, a dermatologist for St. Francis Care, the numbers are getting worse, not better. “Over the last 15 years, […]
