MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Dr. Spencer Liles, a surgical oncologist at the USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute joined WKRG News 5 on Monday for Medical Moment. This week’s Medical Moment covered diagnosing and treating Melanoma.

Questions asked Dr. Liles were:

  • For someone who may not be familiar, just how serious is melanoma?
  • And someone doesn’t necessarily have to suffer a severe sunburn to develop melanoma?
  • How do we identify possible skin cancers? We hear a lot about moles and seeing changes in ther shape or color but that’s not always the case?
  • How can we best protect ourselves from melanoma and skin cancer?

For answers to these questions see the video above.
