More than half of all new cancers are skin cancers. More than one million people will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year. One in five Americans will get skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. More than 90% of all skin cancers are caused by sun exposure, yet fewer than 33% of adults, adolescents and children routinely use sun protection. Melanoma accounts or ¾ of all deaths from skin cancer – one America dies every hour from melanoma. Melanoma kills more young women than any other cancer.
If melanoma is recognized and treated early, it is almost always curable, but if it is not, the cancer can advance and spread to other parts of the body, where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal. While it is not the most common of the skin cancers, it causes the most deaths. The American Cancer Society estimates that at present, about 120,000 new cases of melanoma in the US are diagnosed in a year.
Are all skin cancers caused by sun exposure?
Ninety to 95 percent of cases are caused by sun exposure, and most of these are basal-cell and squamous-cell carcinomas. Melanoma is a bit more complicated because there are other risk factors beyond sun exposure. Fortunately, sun exposure is a risk factor you can control.
How can I tell if I am at risk for skin cancer?
Risk factors for skin cancer include exposure to sun, greater than 50 pigmented moles and a personal or family history of skin cancer. Also, people with red or blond hair, light eyes, sun freckling and an inability to tan are at greater risk.
What are some things I can do to prevent skin cancer?
We suggest staying out of the sun between the hours of 11am and 2 pm. Daily use of sunscreen is important. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Wear protective clothing while outdoors. A wide-brimmed hat is also an excellent investment for your skin.
