In brief: Sun Protection!
The main risk factor you can control is sun exposure.
Apply high protection sunblock early and often, and wear appropriate full length clothing as much as possible (clothing designed for sun shielding will keep you comfortable, cool and safe). If you have any suspicious lesions, get them checked out asap. Early detection of melanoma is critical to a good result.

In brief: Melanoma prevention
Some melanomas are caused by an inherited gene and you have to be frequently followed by a dermatologist.
Otherwise, since childhood, people should have their skin protected from getting any sunburn as this is a sign of "radiation [ultraviolet] toxicity." use a sunscreen with u.V. A and b protection, go out early and late hours, wide-brimmed hat and sun protection clothing. Avoid tanning beds.
