Anyone Can Get Skin Cancer

Posted 5/27/2016 by UHBlog

It’s that time of year again – warm weather, sun and being outside more often than we are inside. It’s also a good time to remind ourselves that anyone can get skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S. but many types of skin cancer can be prevented.

Ultraviolet light, also called UV rays, can damage skin and lead to skin cancer. UV rays come from the sun and indoor tanning booths. To lower your skin cancer risk, protect your skin from the sun and avoid indoor tanning. If you see changes in your skin, see a doctor.

Learn more about skin cancer prevention and screenings from the experts at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center.
