SKIN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH – FOCUS ON MELANOMA

Posted by 05.18.11

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and a good time to examine your body for potential problem spots. Among the most common skin cancers –  which include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma – melanoma is the most serious and potentially deadly. It must be treated and surgically removed for survival.

The good news is that if diagnosed and removed while in its early stages, melanoma is almost 100 percent curable. Unfortunately, once it spreads it is difficult to treat and is frequently deadly.

SOS SAVE OUR SKIN – Ban Tanning Beds!

Posted by 05.11.10

Did you know that tanning beds are actually more harmful than regular UV rays?
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) (part of the World Health Organization) recommended that tanning beds be added to the highest cancer risk category – “carcinogenic to humans.”  They based their decision on recent research published in The Lancet Oncology that found that one burn in a tanning bed equals 10 to 12 sunburns, and people who use tanning beds before the age of 30 increase their risk for melanoma by 75%. Shockingly, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, 26% of young Americans are still using tanning beds to get a dangerous dose of color.
