Healthy Living: Treating Melanoma

Posted: Updated:

It brightens the day, and helps the grass grow.  

But the sun is taking more lives every year in the United States.  

As Michelle Dunaway shows us today in Healthy Living, now there's a new treatment for metastatic melanoma.  

The cost of this new treatment is $16,000 a month.

Doctors say sun exposure in a person's first three decades provide the greatest risk for melanoma.

To help prevent melanoma, don't schedule outside activities during 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  

And of course, wear sunscreen.
