Custom Black Bracelets For Melanoma Awareness

Raise Melanoma Awareness With Silicone Wristbands

Customize silicone bracelets to raise awareness on Melanoma. Melanoma is the deadliest skin cancer. Rates of its diagnosis are on the rise, even though some other cancer diagnosis rates have fallen. To raise awareness of how easy it is to detect and cure melanoma - and how easy it is to prevent it - the American Academy of Dermatology has designated May as Melanoma Awareness Month. You can help support the cause by designing Melanoma awareness wristbands.

How to Use Wristbands For Melanoma Awareness Month

Because the aim of the month is to educate as many people as possible, hospitals and other medical centers will be hosting skin cancer screenings. These events are a great chance to give people reminders in the form of wristbands. The bands can be custom-made specifically for Melanoma Awareness Month - they can be black, the color associated with the cause, and they can have sayings or phrases imprinted on them. For example, they can say “Don’t forget sunscreen!” or “Set a date for a monthly skin check.” To stand out, the bands can also have glitter or can be made in thicker widths for a more unique look.

What is Melanoma?

Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. Here are some important statistics about melanoma awareness from The American Melanoma Foundation.

  • Most melanomas (70%+) begin in or near an existing mole or dark spot on the skin.
  • Melanomas have an irregular appearance and are usually larger than an ordinary mole.
  • Melanoma in individuals 10-39 years old is highly curable, with 5-year survival rates exceeding 90%.
  • 1 in 58 men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime. Caucasians and men older than 50 years of age are at a higher risk of developing melanoma than the general population.
  • One American dies of melanoma almost every hour (every 61 minutes).
  • Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old.
  • Melanoma is increasing faster in females 15-29 years old than males in the same age group. In females 15-29 years old, the torso is the most common location for developing melanoma, which might be due to high-risk tanning behaviors.
  • The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 65,161 people a year worldwide die from too much sun, mostly from malignant skin cancer.
  • People with more than 50 moles, atypical moles, or a family history of melanoma are at an increased risk of developing melanoma.
  • About 75 percent of skin cancer deaths are from melanoma.

The Melanoma Research Alliance points out that warning signs of melanoma can be noted on moles. Asymmetry, uneven borders, a variety of colors, a large diameter, and evolution of a mole can all indicate malignancy and should be checked by a doctor.
