Dermatologists Encourage People to Screen the One You Love for Skin Cancer
Date:5/4/2009

  • Wear protective clothing, such as a long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, when possible.
  • Seek shade when appropriate, remembering that the sun's rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If your shadow is shorter than you are, seek shade.
  • Protect children from sun exposure by playing in the shade, using protective clothing, and applying sunscreen.
  • Use extra caution near water, snow and sand as they reflect the damaging rays of the sun which can increase your chance of sunburn. Get vitamin D safely through a healthy diet that may include vitamin supplements. Don't seek the sun.
  • Avoid tanning beds. Ultraviolet light from the sun and tanning beds can cause skin cancer and wrinkling. If you want to look like you've been in the sun, consider using a sunless self-tanning product, but continue to use sunscreen with it.
  • Check your birthday suit on your birthday. If you notice anything changing, growing, or bleeding on your skin, see a dermatologist. Skin cancer is very treatable when caught early.

  • Monday, May 4, is Melanoma Monday(R) and the official launch of Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month(R). Through the Academy's National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Screening Program, volunteer dermatologists provide free skin cancer screenings in their communities. The public can visit www.aad.org to find a free skin cancer screening in their area.
