About twice as many men as women will die from melanoma this year. Before the age of 49, more women than men are diagnosed with melanoma, however, after age 50, this reverses and significantly more men develop melanoma. The Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that 6,470 men and 3,240 women will die from melanoma in 2014. 
Reason #1: Men Don’t Use Sunscreen As Often as Women
Exposure to the sun’s UV rays - both UVA and UVB - are known to cause skin cancer. About 65 percent of all melanomas are attributed to sun exposure. Protecting your skin from the sun’s rays helps prevent skin cancer. That means wearing sunscreen everyday and reapplying it every few hours, wearing protective clothing and avoiding spending long periods of time in the sun between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.

But any time your nipple changes, it’s worth a call to the doctor. Changes might include the following; • A nipple that’s suddenly inverted (pulled in, rather than sticking out); • A change in the shape of your nipple; • A spontaneous discharge (i.e., you don’t have to squeeze your breast for it to appear), other than milk. Special signs to watch for include the discharge coming from only one breast; if it’s tinged with blood; or if it’s clear and sticky. In addition, a rare form of breast cancer, Paget’s disease, starts with a red, scaly, itchy rash, over and around the nipple and areola. It may scab over; it looks a lot like eczema, and is often misdiagnosed. Have it checked; your doctor may decide it’s eczema, and treat it with a rub-on cream. If that works, ...
