As with most forms of cancer, the earlier that signs of melanoma are discovered, the better a patient’s odds of survival.
Those signs, which come in the form of abnormal moles or lesions, can be difficult to find when they’re on the back of a person’s head or covered by hair.
If you catch a melanoma at its earliest state, you have a much greater cure rate. Very often, by the time these head and scalp and neck lesions are found, they’re at a later stage.
