Skin Cancer Prevention

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. It develops when skin cells are damaged, usually by the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

It's significant to visit our dermatologist if you notice any suspicious changes in your skin, such as a new growth, a change in the color, shape, or size of an existing mole, or a sore that does not heal. We recommend regular skin exams with Dr. Indira Misra-Higgins at Beverly Hills Skin Care Institute if you have a personal or family history of skin cancer in Beverly Hills, MI, or have a weakened immune system. Visits are also beneficial to detect any potential skin cancer early on for the successful management of the condition.

Skin Cancer Prevention

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer worldwide. But it's also one of the most preventable. You can protect yourself from developing skin cancer in several ways, plus they're simple and easy to implement.

First, limit your exposure to the sun. Stay in the shade during peak sun hours, typically between 10 am and 4 pm, and wear protective clothing such as long-sleeved shirts and wide-brimmed hats. Don't forget to wear sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. Apply it generously to all exposed skin, even on cloudy days.

Next, avoid tanning beds and sun lamps. These emit harmful UV radiation and increase your risk of developing skin cancer (especially) if you use them frequently. You'll also want to regularly examine your skin and report any changes to your healthcare provider. Early detection is crucial to the successful treatment of skin cancer. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables and regular exercise can boost overall health and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.
