offers great advantages to clients, everything from physical to mental wellbeing, but I was surprised as the physician, when a massage turned out to be a lifesaver. While giving my firefighter husband that is athletic a massage that is relaxing, I discovered a melanoma on the bottom arch of his right foot, the final place you'd anticipate to find it. I started my career 15 years ago after many years working as a para medical professional in mainstream and complementary medicine. As an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) for 19 years, I've performed CPR and other lifesaving maneuvers in my own volunteer livelihood. Imagine my surprise when my husband's dermatologist told him that I saved his life when I seen something odd on his foot.

It causes the most deaths while it isn't the most frequently seen of the skin cancers. The number of new cases of melanoma is estimated at 59,940; of these in women. in men and 26,030, 33,910 will be Melanoma is a malignant tumor that originates in melanocytes. The cells which produce the pigment melanin that colours hair, our skin, and eyes. Nearly all melanomas are black or brown. Yet, some melanomas are skin-colored, blue, reddish, purple, pink or white.* In my own husband's case it was a dark purplish brown, like that of a blood blister that grew irregular boundaries rather quickly, and transformed to black. As a precaution, doctors performed a procedure called Lymphoscintigraphy or mapping of lymph nodes to ensure the Melanoma did not distribute to any of the closest nodes near where the melanoma has been removed.
