Prevention. Detection. Treatment.

Know Melanoma, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization



Know Melanoma's mission is to lead innovative, proprietary skin cancer prevention initiatives, while providing and maintaining a robust online education center offering the most accurate and accessible content. Through collaboration with private medical practices and hospitals, Know Melanoma aims to build and engage an international community of skin safety aware individuals.




Never stop educating ourselves and the public on the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma.


Constantly strive to improve and evolve our methods for conveying the dangers of skin cancer and how to properly prevent it.


Share the stories of melanoma survivors to inspire hope and build an international community.


Work with industry leaders to make our tools and resources available to as many people as possible.



In the summer of 2017, Scott Shrager established Know Melanoma, Inc., inspired by a passion for dermatology/oncology, his mother's two melanoma diagnoses, and a frightening revelation that free, accurate, and creative melanoma education/prevention centers simply do not exist. What distinguishes Know Melanoma from other skin cancer awareness foundations is that we produce our own proprietary tools, and intensely focus on the quality of our content and how it is delivered.
