- It’s true that people with darker skin have a lower risk of melanoma. But as a recent study of non-Hispanic black Americans showed, it’s also true that they’re more likely to have lower survival rates when they are diagnosed. That’s partly because compared with non-Hispanic whites, people with darker skin are more often diagnosed with later-stage melanoma (after it’s spread). It’s also because the most common type of melanoma for them?called acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM)?has a lower survival rate.
