The symptoms of skin cancer can vary, but they usually include a change in the appearance or color of the skin, a new mole, or a swelling. If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor.
To reduce your risk of skin cancer, you should stay out of the sun and use sunscreen every day. You can also avoid using tanning beds and other sources of UV light. If you do get sunburned, make sure to apply sunscreen and take pain relief medication as directed. If you have any questions about skin cancer or about how to reduce your risk, please don’t hesitate to contact your skin cancer general practitioner..
Avoid overexposure to the sun. Keep in mind that the sun is not just located in the sky! You also need to avoid overexposure to the sun by avoiding long exposure to the sun during the day (e.g., walking outside for an extended period of time without sunscreen), using a sunscreen when you go out in the sun, and wearing sunglasses when you're outdoors.
Wear sunscreen every day. Make sure to use a sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher, and apply it liberally to all areas of your skin. They are a major source of skin cancer risk, and they should be avoided if possible. Tanning beds release large amounts of UV radiation, which can damage your skin and increase your risk of developing skin cancer.
