If you have not seen your doctor this year for a professional skin exam, Skin Cancer Awareness Month (May) serves as a good reminder to schedule an appointment.
Over 90% of all skin cancers are caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Each unprotected exposure increases your risk of developing skin cancer so to help protect yourself:
- Always Find Shade
- Avoid Tanning and UV Tanning Booths
- Cover up with Clothing, a Hat and UV-Blocking Sunglasses
- Wear SPF 15+ Sunscreen Daily
- For Extended Outdoor Activity, use a Water-Resistant, SPF 30+ Sunscreen
