According to statistics, men over 50 have a higher risk than the general population of developing melanoma - the deadliest form of skin cancer. It therefore goes without saying that men who fall into this age group should keep a sharp eye out for signs of skin cancer.
On the other hand, many women in this age group say that they're more likely than their male partners to notice suspicious spots on the skin, which means they could help facilitate early skin cancer detection. New research conducted by The American Association of Dermatologists (AAD) confirms this - read on for the full story...
Research finds that women can help their male partners with regard to detecting skin cancer
The research by the AAD determined that women are a whopping nine times more likely than men to notice signs of skin cancer
on others. It also found that men who are assisted by women during skin exams are less likely to miss skin lesions than women who are assisted by men.
To reach these findings, the AAD in conjunction with Melanoma
Detection and Prevention Month in May, surveyed 1,250 women between ages 40 and 65. The survey found that of these women, 45% said they’d be more likely than their husband to notice a suspicious spot on his skin. Furthermore, 35% said they’d actually noticed a suspicious spot on their husband’s skin before he did.

The AAD suggests that men over 50 conduct regular skin self-exams
“Because men over 50 have an increased risk of melanoma
, it’s important for them to conduct regular skin self-exams to detect the disease in its earliest stages, when it’s most treatable,” Henry W Lim, president of the AAD, said. “Since it can be difficult to examine some parts of your body on your own, it’s best to ask a partner for help.”
Lim suggests that if you notice any suspicious spots on your skin or your partner’s, or see anything changing, bleeding or itching, you see a board-certified dermatologist straight away. Early detection of skin cancer
can save your – or your partner’s – life!

“I may be politically incorrect and stepping on the toes of big pharma, but, my test results for my aggressive prostate cancer in consistently getting better and better. I have gone from surgery, chemo and radiation suggestions to my doctor’s suggestion of wait-and-see, as improvement has been quite dramatic. I have only been on my daily regimen for 9 months.” ~ John Duffy
