What You Need To Know About Skin Cancer

May is the national skin cancer detection and prevention month. That being the case I thought we would focus on skin cancer and what you need to know.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States and melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. How do we get skin cancer?

The main cause of skin cancer comes from Ultraviolet UV radiation from the sun. It can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The good news is, when skin cancer is detected and treated early, it’s almost always curable.

What You Can Do To Prevent Skin Cancer

We have all heard it many times, when you’re going to be outside, put sunscreen on. Well I don’t mean to beat a dead horse but, applying sunscreen is the best defence against skin cancer. Something most people don’t think about though is, you don’t have to be outside to get UV exposure. UV rays comes through our windows and into our cars and homes. That is why one of the new trends is to install window film on all your windows, home windows and your car windows.
