Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Verne Weisberg Shares Melanoma Information.

Dr. Verne Weisberg, founder and owner of The Plastic Surgery Center, encourages readers to find out as much as possible and share information about Melanoma cancers since this is currently the best way to improve outcomes.

Portland, ME, June 7, 2016: Owner and Founder of The Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Verne Weisberg posted a new article on his website entitled, Sharing Melanoma Information Can Lead to Early Detection and Prevention. As Dr. Weisberg states at the end of his article, “the best strategy for improving Melanoma diagnoses outcomes right now is prevention and early detection.”

Verne Weisberg (New) Weisberg begins respectfully, writing, “In honor of Melanoma Skin Cancer Prevention month I am posting information from the Melanoma Research Alliance in order to get the news out about this life-threatening cancer in hopes of leading to prevention, early detection and eventually a cure.”

Extending an invitation to learn more, Weisberg states, “I invite you to visit the Melanoma Research Alliance website at and read about Melanoma in greater depth. If you don’t visit their website, please read and share what you learn here with your family, friends and loved ones.”

Weisberg shares facts and figures from the Melanoma Research Alliance site one of which is the following. “The ability to spread widely to other parts of the body is a unique characteristic of melanoma that the other more common skin cancers, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, rarely possess. This characteristic makes melanoma the deadliest of all skin cancers.”
