Skin cancer is the most common of all cancer types. More than 2 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year in the United States – more than all other cancers combined. The number of skin cancer cases has been going up over the past few decades. Most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Much of this exposure comes from the sun, but some may come from man-made sources, such as indoor tanning lamps.
The good news is that you can do a lot to protect yourself and your family from skin cancer, and there are very effective treatment options available when the cancer is caught early enough. Finding possible skin cancers doesn’t require any x-rays or blood tests – a through visual evaluation is all it takes. Contact Heart and Health at 631-482-1355 to request your complimentary appointment today.
