Skin Cancer - Prevention

Prevention is the best way to deal with all forms of skin cancer. The less one is exposed to sunlight, the less the risk of skin cancer. One way to avoid sunlight, of course, is simply to stay out of the sun. At the least, one should avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day, between 11 A.M. and 1 P.M When one is in the sun, he or she should use sunscreen with a protective factor of fifteen or more.

Regular self-examinations can also be helpful. A person should check once a month for unusual moles or other growths on the skin. If such growths are found, medical advice should be sought.
