Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, doesn’t usually occur in kids, but a new study shows that it’s happening more often.While melanoma in children is stillextremely rare, the rate increased by about 2 percent per year from 1973 to 2009 among U.S children from newborns to age 19. Melanoma accounts for up to 3 percent of all pediatric cancers, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.According to the study, 1,317 children were diagnosed with melanoma during the study time frame. Of these, 1,230 children were white. Because the number of melanoma cases among other racial and ethnic groups was so small, researchers focused the analysis on white children. The biggest jump in melanoma rates was seen among adolescents aged 15 to 19, especially girls, the study showed.

On the heels of DC & Maryland Yakub Muslims issuing a Melanoma Watch for DC based Reparations Offender and Skin Sinner Stacy Kravitz, a freelance writer who often pens of her personal, “shaming” experience of being successfully assigned multiple Basal Cell Carcinomas, the Glax Haas Research Institute has released a portion of a new Melanoma study that finds that: millions of whites who have 1 of the many forms of skin ‘cancer’ are too ashamed to report it; and thus, current Western estimates of it’s rate – which already document it at ‘epidemic proportions – are vastly understated.”
One in five Americans is affected by skin cancer, the National Skin Cancer Foundation, a Western based organization, says. Glax Haas researchers, however, say the numbers are far greater and the likely hood is that one out of every three whites actually has one form of it; and, by 2013, they estimate, all whites will have one of the forms.
