So what can you do to protect your skin and prevent cancer?
Start by applying sunscreen every day — not just when you're at the beach or by the pool. Ensure your sunscreen is at least 15 SPF, and that it protects against UVA and UVB rays, as both are very harmful to our skin.

Stay away from tanning beds, which expose users to direct UVA and UVB rays. They also cause premature aging and may lead to eye disease or cancer.

Examine every inch of your body, not just the obvious places. Though melanoma most often occurs on sun-exposed skin, it can appear anywhere. Be sure to check your feet, toes, nail beds, and even your private areas.

Lastly, the best way to prevent skin cancer is to schedule annual exams with a dermatologist. Sure, co-pays can be expensive, but what price can you put on your life? Have a doctor examine you and any spots or moles you might have.
