After a Summer in the Sun, Are You at Risk? Dr. Richard Bezozo Offers Tips for Early Detection: Screenings Can Save

Your Life

MILLBURN, N.J., Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- As a summer sitting in the sun is coming to an end, are you at risk for developing skin cancer? One in five Americans will get skin cancer, with one American dying every hour from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer so, now is the time to get your skin checked for suspicious-looking moles and lesions.

Early Detection Saves Lives

Available for interviews is Dr. Richard Bezozo, president of MoleSafe USA, who can offer tips on how to detect possible skin cancer and avoid the risk factors of melanoma. Among those who are most at risk(1):

-- "Sun Worshippers": Sunlight is the main source of UV radiation, in addition to tanning lamps and booths. Any exposure to light from these sources increases your risk for skin cancer, including melanoma.

-- Multiple Moles: Moles usually begin to appear in children and teenagers and most will never cause problems, but a person who has many is more likely to develop melanoma.

-- The Fair and The Freckled: The risk of melanoma is more than 10 times higher for whites than for African Americans - skin pigment has a protective effect. Whites with red or blond hair or fair skin that freckles or burns easily are at increased risk.

-- Family History: Your risk of melanoma is significantly higher if one or more of your first-degree relatives has been diagnosed with melanoma. Around 10% of all people with melanoma have a family history of melanoma.

-- Personal History: A person who has already had melanoma has an increased risk of getting melanoma again. About 5% to 10% of people with melanoma will develop a second one at some point.
