American Academy of Dermatology, Major League Baseball and Major League Baseball Players Association Play Sun Smart(TM) to Strike Out Skin Cancer
Date:6/20/2008

n to the PSA, MLB will be distributing sun safety tip cards at guest services in all ball parks and sun safety messages will be made by the game day announcers. A full page Play Sun Smart(TM) ad also will run in USA Today prior to June 21, MLB's Skin Cancer Awareness Day.

More than 1 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year and one American dies of melanoma almost every hour (every 62 minutes). Of these cases, more than 116,500 are melanoma, a cancer that claims more than 8,000 lives annually. Since the Play Sun Smart(TM) program's inception in 1999, more than 19,000 skin cancer screenings of players, trainers, coaches and staff of the MLB family have been conducted.

"The baseball community continues to set a good example of sun-safe behavior," said dermatologist Brian B. Adams, MD, MPH, Chair of the Academy's Sports Committee. "We encourage everyone, including baseball players and fans, to regularly conduct skin self-examinations to look for signs of skin cancer which can be successfully treated if caught early."

Skin self-examinations consist of regularly looking over the entire body, including the back, scalp, soles, between the toes and on the palms. If there are any changes in the size, color, shape or texture of a mole, the development of a new mole or any other unusual changes in the skin, see a dermatologist immediately.

Just like the pros, the public can be screened for skin cancer by visiting the Academy's Web sites at http://www.PlaySunSmart.org or http://www.aad.org to find a free screening in their area. Through this public service, dermatologists have volunteered to conduct more than 1.8 million skin cancer screenings and have detected 180,170 suspicious lesions, including 20,933 suspected melanomas, since 1985.

Sun exposure is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer. You can have fun in the
