Do you only develop melanoma in exposed skin? Is melanoma the same for men and women?
These may not be the first questions you ask when thinking about this most dangerous form of skin cancer.
On the newest episode of the Hadassah On Call podcast, Prof. Michal Lotem, head of Hadassah's Center for Melanoma and Cancer Immunotherapy at the Sharett Institute of Oncology, tells us everything we need to know — and didn’t think we needed to know — about melanoma, including if there could one day be a vaccine to prevent it.
On the subject of vaccines, Prof. Lotem also explains how the success of messenger RNA technology in the COVID-19 vaccine gives her hope for treating cancer.
