From the founder and Co-Director of the renowned Columbia University Melanoma Center, the first comprehensive guide to help you prevent—and survive—a diagnosis of melanoma.

The fastest rising form of cancer worldwide, melanoma can strike at any age.

Drawing on his years as one of the nation’s foremost researchers and specialists in the field of melanoma treatment, Dr. Howard L. Kaufman shares his easy-to-follow, whole-life plan for detecting melanoma early, making informed decisions after a diagnosis, and taking an active role in treatment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Melanoma Book
This book is outstanding in guiding you with insight on cancer and options to take. Also required reading before you begin the process of determining your action plan in your fight with cancer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Understand, Up to Date...a Great Resource!
When my husband was diagnosed unexpectedly with malignant melanoma last fall, I scoured the internet and available books for all the information I could find re: interpreting his symptoms, stage and prognosis.

This book was a God-Send. In very succinct, non-alarmist (but non-sugar-coated) easy-to-comprehend speech, Dr. Kaufman presents an accessible resource for those whose lives are impacted by melanoma. This text has been invaluable for interpreting and assimilating information given in the appointments with the numerous caregivers involved in melanoma management/eradication.

Dr. Kaufman's suggestions and directives also help us to be pro-active in our questioning, and affirm the need for continual vigilence and monitoring.

Thankfully, my husband's prognosis is very good...and periodically I pick this book up to remind me that it is!

I'd heartily recommend this book to anyone who needs a sound perspective on melanoma, and on doing what can be done to prevent recurrence.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Help
Finally, a skin book with all the info you never seem to get time to ask your doctor. Or in my case recently, my HMO Dr. just casually reassures me there's no problem. I have too many friends/relatives that got the same treatment only to end up with serious skin melanomas. This is a very good refrence.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative and Current.
Very informative. Easy to read. It includes the most recent information for 2005.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, helpful, and reader-friendly
Dr. Kaufman's book is an educational and invaluable discussion of the facts of melanoma, both its prevention and its treatment. His work is relevant to everyone, since melanoma's number of victims is rising faster than that of any other cancer. His advice on how to prevent the disease, backed up by informative graphs and statistics, is practical and useful. He competently reviews many possible treatment options, letting the reader know what is available to her and the costs and benefits of each option. He even ventures into the realm of melanoma research, describing and commenting on progress being made in its treatment. No melanoma patient should be without this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear and Concise - A Good Place To Start
A great source for the individual who has just been diagnosed with melanoma and wants to know where to begin for information on diagnosis, possible treatments, and questions to ask one's doctors. This is also a good resource for friends and loved ones of those who have been recently diagnosed with melanoma. The information is very elementary and somewhat basic, but everyone needs to start somewhere. This book is a better resource for those who have either stage I or II melanoma. Individuals with advanced stages of melanoma, or who have been battling this dread disease for some time, will probably not find this book as useful or informative.

This book was very useful in understanding melanoma. My mother had the disease and I have many moles that on occasion worry me. THe photos and text dispelled many of the myths I had heard about getting melanoma and now I know what to look for when I worry about a mole changing. I don't panic about my moles as much and now I'm armed to discuss anything with my doctor in an intelligent manner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Questions Answered
Dad was suffering from Melanoma Cancer and I bought this book for Mom, who doesn't have internet access. After doctor appointments, she'd find herself with more and more questions she should have asked. This book answered so many of them. It also prepared her for what to expect as the cancer progressed. I'm very thankful I purchased this book for Mom. She felt prepared for the possibilities of what was to come. It also, in some ways, helped her stay strong knowing that certain side effects would occur. Melanoma is such a painful cancer and more awareness is definitely needed. This book should be read by anyone with small children and by those spending a lot of time outside in the elements. Maybe hearing about the side effects of melanoma will get us all to wear sunscreen each and every day. Anyway, if you are caring for someone with Melanoma or have a family member or friend who has it, BUY THIS BOOK and read it cover to cover.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book; Great Doctor
This book is a must for any melanoma patient or their family.

As a one-year survivor of Stage II melanoma, this book was great in helping me deal with my diagnosis and what could have been ahead.

Dr. McClay also happens to be my personal oncologist and he's a fantastic and caring doctor.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is a must!
If you've been diagnosed with melanoma, this book is a must! The day I was told I had cancer, I was so frightened and confused. The doctor asked me if I had any questions, and I couldn't think of anything! The word "cancer!" just kept going through my mind. After reading this book, I was able to clear my head and not only ask questions, but ask the "right" questions. The only thing it didn't cover is the fact that it is sometimes difficult to diagnose melanoma. Sometimes the results are not black or white...there are also grey areas. But all in all, this book was extremely informative. Highly recomended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Opened my eyes...
I am at high risk for skin cancer being pale skinned, light eyed, blonde and living in San Diego. I never knew it was better for me to use sunblock and stay out of the sun instead of trying to go for a base tan, especially in a tanner. Tans only have a suncreen of SPF 5, come to find out. And even people with naturally dark skin need to wear sunblock because they can get skin cancer too, often in parts that go unchecked due to the fact people think their darker skin isn't at risk! These are two of the many "myths" brought out in this guide. Everyone should read this book so they know the facts about these horrible diseases.

This book blew my mind. I have found out the difference between UVA and UVB (and UVC) rays, how to protect myself from the sun and how to check myself to make sure I don't have skin cancer.I am not a real sun lover, but I amazed at all the myths people have about how the sun is healthy and how it is ok to hang out in the sun...people worry more about terrorism and serial killers than the sun and more people will die from skin cancer than dying, let's say, in a plane...it confuses me how people can be so little informed.

This book was written well. It is easy to read and it is sectioned in a way that it is easy to get to the answer you need. I was only going to read the first half, since the rest is about what to do if you have skin cancer, but I read that too, because it was interesting and I would rather know and be prepared if it happens in my future than not know. Like I say, this should be given out at schools in the San Diego area since many of them make the kids eat outside, which is the worst thing for them. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Throughout the world, the incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing at an alarming rate. This dramatic rise is largely due to more frequent and prolonged exposure to intense sun, the result of major changes in clothing styles, recreation, and lifestyle (including widespread access to midwinter resort vacations).Significantly, recent scientific studies have shown an increased number of moles on, and a higher rate of melanoma in, people with the greatest sunscreen use, pointing out the mistaken belief that using sunscreen means getting a "safe" tan. The truth is that most sunscreen provides protection from UVB rays—the rays that cause the sunburn you see and feel—but not from UVA rays—the cancer-causing rays that penetrate deeper into the skin.

In this book, physicians Jill R. Schofield and William A. Robinson team up to provide comprehensive information about melanoma for patients and family members as well as those who are concerned about getting the disease. They provide the latest information on prevention, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and follow-up, and answer a host of questions, such as:
• I use a number 15 sunscreen.Is that enough?
• I have been under a lot of stress lately. Did that make me get melanoma?
• If the melanoma comes back, when will it happen?
• Is there a blood test to tell if the melanoma has spread?
• Is a mole more likely to turn into melanoma if it's in a place where my clothes rub?

In addition, the authors describe who is at risk and tell readers how to determine their level of risk; describe skin warning signs and unusual forms of melanoma; talk about melanoma in children, pregnant women, and people whose immune systems are compromised; and take a look at what's on the horizon in diagnosis and treatment.The book is fully illustrated with color photographs and line drawings and includes a glossary and a guide to resources—support and advocacy organizations, and web sites—for people with melanoma. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The book on moles and melanoma
I got this book because I have moles and wanted to learn more about them and understand the diagnosis and treatment for melanoma.

The glossary and index were very helpful.The best aspect for me was the photos of moles and the chapter on skin warning signs.

Part I of the book starts with recognizing and preventing melanoma.Part II of the book focuses on Melanoma and the treatment.Part III is the less common types along with research.

I found this book to be a wonderful resource as I hit 45.The diagrams are useful as well.

Here, Dr. Wang outlines a 5-step plan for melanoma patients to attain the most optimal treatment and survival outcome.Second, it helps the readers to go through the "Marathon" phase – a period after the initial treatment when patients can develop recurrent waves of urgent questions and nagging concerns regarding their skin cancer. This part of the book provides valuable insights and answers that address these concerns. For More Information and Sample Chapters, Please Visit www.BeatingMelanoma.com.

“Dr. Steven Wang offers insightful information and valuable guidance in this practical book. It offers the readers both knowledge and hope as they cope with the diagnosis of melanoma. This book will benefit nearly all melanoma patients and their family members.” David Polsky, MD PhD. New York University School of Medicine
