SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — May is Melanoma Awareness Month. More than 4,000 New Yorkers are diagnosed annually.

There’s an innovative test on the market called the DermTech Smart Sticker.

It analyzes moles without the need for a biopsy. The company claims it can rule out melanoma with 99% reliability.

Doctor Ramsay Farah from Farah Dermatology & Cosmetics in Syracuse came on The Morning News to explain how it works.
