Skin cancer is one of the leading forms of cancer (especially here in Florida!) that affects thousands of people every year. Be sure to check your body regularly for any abnormalities. If you see any changes or new growths, be sure to visit your dermatologist and have it tested. And don’t forget to ask your dermatologist for KeriCure’s Advanced Seal™Liquid Bandage to help cover and protect the skin after removal of any moles and other skin spots to hydrate and protect against infection!
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Although some people are at a higher risk of having skin cancer, anyone can get it. It is important to know that the main cause of skin cancer is from ultraviolet (UV) light, which is emitted from the sun’s rays or from artificial light sources, like tanning beds.
Below you will find some information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention about skin cancer symptoms and also the measures you can take to prevent it.
What Are the Symptoms of Skin Cancer?
A change in your skin is the most common sign of skin cancer. This could be a new growth, a sore that doesn’t heal, or a change in a mole. Not all skin cancers look the same.
A simple way to remember the signs of melanoma is to remember the A-B-C-D-Es of melanoma—
• “A” stands for asymmetrical. Does the mole or spot have an irregular shape with two parts that look very different?
• “B” stands for border. Is the border irregular or jagged?
• “C” is for color. Is the color uneven?
• “D” is for diameter. Is the mole or spot larger than the size of a pea?
• “E” is for evolving. Has the mole or spot changed during the past few weeks or months?
Talk to your doctor if you notice changes in your skin such as a new growth, a sore that doesn’t heal, a change in an old growth, or any of the A-B-C-D-Es of melanoma.
What Can I Do to Reduce the Risk?
CDC recommends easy options for protection from UV radiation
• Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
• Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs.
• Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
• Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block both UVA and UVB rays.
• Use sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB protection.
• Avoid indoor tanning.
