Melanoma can be prevented if people become more aware.young people and older Australias still put themselves at risk thinking it won't effect the. Melanoma can spread very quickly and can spread before it is detected. More education should be done at schools. Sun cream has to be applied regularly and further prevention with hats and sitting in shade can assist.
