Is melanoma preventable?

Melanoma is not completely preventable, but you can help reduce your risk of developing it by not tanning and avoiding sun exposure during peak UV times of 10am to 3pm. Seeking out shade and wearing sunscreen and protective clothing such as wide-brimmed hats and long-sleeved collared shirts can help protect you from harmful UV rays.
