“The number of cancers diagnosed each year is set to double by the year 2050 if we don’t do anything about it. This is unacceptable! My goal is to reverse this trend and empower you with knowledge of your own personal cancer risk, with risk-adjusted screening recommendations and prevention options, so that you may optimize your own health.”
Dr. Mel, Physician Founder, Cancer Prevention Movement
After spending nearly two decades in academic medicine, including completing post-graduate training programs in Internal Medicine, Hematology-Oncology, Cancer Prevention Research, and Clinical Cancer Genetics, Melanie R. Palomares, M.D., M.S., affectionately known as “Dr. Mel”, founded the Cancer Prevention Movement. She uses her unique training experience to practice as a Preventive Oncologist, specializing in cancer prevention, early detection, and risk assessment.
She’s not only a physician, she’s also a cancer survivor. She credits her ability to conquer cancer with minimal treatment to understanding risk factors and being able to recognize the signs of early cancer.
