Protect Yourself from Preventable Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer Care Specialists | May 22, 2019 | Category: Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer Awareness Month, Skin Cancer Care Specialists, Jupiter, FL

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month and with the powerful sun rays that come with the summer months, Dr. Weisberg and his staff at Skin Cancer Care Specialists want to make sure you have access to everything you need to know about how to protect yourself. In honor of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) started an interactive campaign called “Do You Use Protection?” and released videos, self-assessments, and educational downloads available to the public on their website.

The main points the AAD campaign, and Dr. Weisberg, would like to get across are:

  • Skin cancer is the MOST common cancer in the USA.
  • Exposure to UV rays is the most preventable risk factor.
  • Don’t be fooled by cloudy days that cover the sun, up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays can still reach your skin through the clouds.

Ways to protect yourself:

  • Avoid the sun and stick to shady areas while the sun is at its strongest, between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm.
  • Make sure to apply a broad-spectrum, water resistant sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher before going outside and remember to reapply every two hours.
  • Dress to protect! Wear long-sleeved shirts, sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat when outside. You can read more about using UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) clothing to protect yourself in our July 2018 blog.

Dr. Weisberg is an associate of the American College of Mohs Surgery, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American Academy of Dermatology.

Visit the AAD website for more in depth information regarding skin cancer awareness and the AAD interactive campaign.
