Massive Decline in Malignant Melanoma, says Cancer Research UK
According to the recent revelations made by Cancer Research UK, it has been unveiled that a significant improvement has been noticed in the survival rate of people suffering from malignant melanoma.
It has now been found that more than 80% people diagnosed with malignant melanoma now have chances to survive the cancer. Cancer Research UK scientists were of the view that if situation of early 1970s is compared with present scenario then a drastic change will be noticed.
At that time, there were either more or less than 50% chances of survival. However, now things have changed. Due to the improved diagnosis rate, better treatment and increased awareness level, survival rate has improved.
It has been found that there are 13,000 cases of the melanoma that get diagnosed every year in the UK. Dr Harpal Kumar, Head of Cancer Research UK, said that some of the other practices that have brought a decline in the mortality rate of the deadly cancer are sunbathing habits.
Experts have suggested that regular use of sunscreen of SPF 30 or even more can bring a decline in the melanoma skin cancer rate by 50%. One of the other recommendations is to avoid stepping out in the sun during peak hours of the day that is from 10 am to 1pm.
