Did bob Marley have aids

No, Bob Marley did not have AIDS. He died on May 11, 1981 of skin cancer called 'acral lentiginous melanoma,' aged 36.

While most melanomas are caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or from tanning machines, this type, which develops on hairless skin such as under nails, on the soles of the feet or palms of the hands, is more likely caused by genetic factors. While this form is rare, the incidence is highest in people of color.

According to Skincancer.org, if Marley’s cancer had been detected early, it could have been treated and even cured. Instead, his melanoma spread, or metastasized, to other areas of his body and tragically cut his life short.

Advances in melanoma treatment today likely could have saved or extended his life.
