Lifesaving Hair Appointment Finds Melanoma

This Woman's Hair Colorist May Have Saved Her Life

We have a story for you to think about the next time you consider letting your ends grow out. Eileen Corey is the former Health Correspondent for WKYC in Cleveland, OH. Back in the 1980s, she was beloved not only for her helpful reports, but also for her fiery red hair, which was somewhat of a local media trademark.

Although she's moved on from the station, Corey still keeps her color fresh through monthly appointments with her stylist, Kari Phillips. Since Phillips has been doing Corey's hair for over 15 years, it's safe to say that she's an expert when it comes to her client's head. But at their last appointment, Phillips noticed a mole she hadn't seen before on Corey's hairline.

Luckily, Phillips' sister is a dermatologist who has educated her on the symptoms skin cancer. Phillips went with her gut and urged Corey to get the mark checked out. It turned out to be melanoma.

Because Corey acted quickly, Phillips will only need surgery to remove the mole — no chemo or radiation is necessary. Now, she's urging all stylists to be on the lookout for their clients' health.

Phillips' dermatologist Dr. Pam Davis agrees, but says you don't need to wait until your next cut or color to look. According to Dr. Davis, the best time to check for suspicious spots is right after you shower, because its easier to see when you hair is wet.

If you think you may have a cancerous mole, talk to your doctor immediately.
