While Melanoma is the most dangerous kind of skin cancer, it can be curable if it is caught and treated early.  In this episode, airing Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV, Andrea Heitker shares her personal story, and you’ll learn the signs of Melanoma and what you can do to prevent it.

Second Opinion is the only regularly scheduled health series on public television. Each week, Dr. Peter Salgo engages a panel of medical professionals and patients in honest, in-depth discussions about life-changing medical decisions. Produced in partnership with WXXI, the University of Rochester Medical Center, and West 175 Productions, Second Opinion is made possible in part by support from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), which sponsored the series since 2004. The series is distributed by American Public Television.
