Just because fall has arrived, don’t put away the sunscreen. I’m Laurie Edwards-Tate, with “LifeCycles.”
The risk of melanoma remains the fastest rising form of cancer. Anyone can develop skin cancer no matter your skin color, age, or time of year. In climates like San Diego, the risk is present year-round. Sunscreen should be part of your daily routine. If you can see the sun, it is hitting your skin.
The good news: skin cancer is almost 100 percent curable when found and treated EARLY.
Get a skin cancer check by a qualified dermatologist. It takes minutes. It is painless. And it could save your life so you can enjoy many more sunny days.
