Dear 16-Year-Old Me (Melanoma Awareness Video)

Melanoma is a malignant tumor of melanocytes (cells that produce melanin which is responsible for the colour of skin). It is less common than other skin cancers but is much more dangerous and causes majority of deaths related to skin cancer.

From the video: “I want you to be aware… That melanoma is a young person’s disease.”
