How do I manage my stage 0 melanoma on a daily basis?

If you have been diagnosed with stage 0 melanoma, it's very important to follow treatment advice from your doctors. Usually, treatment will involve the immediate removal of the entire melanoma growth. Once you've been treated, you must follow up yearly with your doctor to make sure the melanoma hasn't come back or spread. It's also important to continue doing self-checks for any changes in moles or new skin growths. It's especially important to protect your skin if you've had stage 0 melanoma, so be sure to limit sun exposure and protect any exposed skin with strong sunscreen and long-sleeved clothing.
