Sun Protection and Sunscreen
The best defense against skin cancer is prevention. Regular use of sunscreen, seeking shade and avoiding mid-day sun, wearing sunglasses and protective clothing and avoiding tanning beds have been shown to effectively reduce skin cancer risk. Having a dermatology provider perform a full-body skin cancer screening at regular intervals offers the best detection of existing skin cancers.
