Skin Cancer Can Be Prevented
Sun exposure increases your risk of getting skin cancer, especially if you have fair skin. Even one sunburn during childhood significantly raises your lifetime risk. One blistering sunburn increases your risk of melanoma 6x. According to many research studies, the good news is most skin cancer can be prevented by practicing good sun protection behavior. Research also shows that not only does sun protection reduce one’s risk of developing skin cancer; sun protection also may decrease the likelihood of recurrence.
Even if you have spent a lot of time in the sun or developed skin cancer, it’s never too late to begin protecting your skin.
