Even fish get skin cancer

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

There was an interesting story in the LA Times about Australian trout that get melanomas. Also, there is a new free app called UMskincheck which was developed at the Univ of Michigan to follow moles. I haven’t checked it out yet, but it should be interesting. Whether or not it would change biopsy rates is yet to be seen. I have biopsied moles that look scary and they’re completely benign and others that are tiny, but dark, and found melanomas or near melanomas. It is important to get a regular screening and get to know your own moles and growths to watch for changes.
