Although skin cancer is more common than all other cancers combined, we have made impressive strides in terms of prevention, early detection and treatment of these cancers. And May, Skin Cancer Awareness Month, serves as a good time to look back on some of the wins, identify remaining opportunities and double down on the strategies that we know work.
“We are doing really well,” says Desiree Ratner, MD, Director of the Comprehensive Skin Cancer Program at Mount Sinai Downtown in New York City. “If skin cancer is caught early, it’s curable, and we are catching more skin cancers early.”

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

PROTECTING SKIN OF COLOR

From fairest pale to luscious brown, all skin types need to take care in the sun. Skin cancer can strike anyone, regardless of color, and can occur even with skin types rich in melanin. If you have lighter skin that burns easily, you have a higher risk of developing skin cancers, but contrary to popular belief, deep pigmentation does not make you immune.

With all skin tones, the key to prevention is protection, which means avoiding sun exposure during peak hours, wearing protective clothing and, of course, using broad spectrum sunscreens and sunblocks.

“Skin cancer prevention is the same for all skin types – sun protection, sun protection, sun protection,” said Washington, D.C. D
