Skin Cancer Awareness

With 3.5 million cases in over two million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation would like to take this opportunity to recommend the following prevention guidelines:

  • Seek the shade
  • Do not burn
  • Avoid tanning and UV tanning booths
  • Cover up with clothing
  • Use a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen
  • Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of sunscreen to your entire body
  • Keep newborns out of the sun
  • Examine your skin head-to-toe every month.

 

 

See your physician every year for a professional skin exam.  For more information, visit www.skincancer.org
