According to Nicholas Bakalar, “Married people are more likely than the unmarried to get timely diagnosis and treatment for malignant skin cancer.” The key to effectively treating Melanoma is early detection. The results are from a study published in JAMA dermatology. According to the study, “46 percent of married people went to a doctor at the earliest stage of the disease, compared with 43 percent of the never married, 39 percent of the divorced, and 32 percent of the widowed.” The data suggests that having a partner can help you make good decisions and encourage visiting your dermatologist.
