Skin Cancer and Prevention Month

Young and elderly female

Summer is almost upon us, and many people enjoy spending their time under the sun in Los Angeles and Orange County.  However, being under the sun also means we are exposed to the ultraviolet rays that are harmful to our skin that can potentially cause skin cancer.  According to studies, an estimate of one in five American will develop skin cancer.  The good news is that it can easily be prevented, detected, and cured.

Seeking shade,  wearing clothing to cover up, and applying protective sunscreen can dramatically increase your chance in preventing skin cancer.  If you notice new or changing spots on your skin, you might want to discuss with your dermatologist about any suspicions.  When the skin cancer is caught early, it can be cured at a staggering 98% of the time according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

Fighting skin cancer is not as overwhelming as other types of cancer, but it is still a cause worth raising awareness for.  If there is a person that can be saved from having awareness about skin cancer prevention and early detection, then it is worth our time to have an open discussion about the subject.
