Skin Cancer Prevention

Request Appointment

The best way to treat skin cancer is to prevent it. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, there are a few ways that you can prevent skin cancer and premature aging.

Wear Sunscreen

30 minutes before going outside, make sure to apply at least 2 tablespoons of broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) to your whole body. Make sure to reapply it every 2 hours, especially if you’re doing outdoor activities or swimming.

Cover Up

Make sure to protect areas where you can’t apply sunscreen, like your scalp, lips, or eyes. Wear UV-protective clothing for extra sun protection, as well as a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Don’t forget lip balm that contains SPF, too!

Don’t Tan

Tanning (indoor or otherwise) is just as harmful to your skin as sunburn. If you use tanning beds or regularly tan outdoors, stop immediately.

Seek Shade

The sun’s UV rays are at their most intense during the middle part of the day, or about 10 AM to 4 PM. If possible, stay inside or seek shade during this time to prevent heightened sun exposure.

Perform a Self-Check

Dermatologists recommend checking your skin from head to toe once every month to check for developing growths. If you notice any changes or new growths, make sure to see a medical professional right away.

Visit Your Dermatologist

You should also see a board-certified dermatologist once per year for a professional skin check. Your dermatologist can closely examine any areas of concern and check areas you can’t normally see. If they find anything concerning, they can perform a biopsy and discuss your options.
