Sun Protection

Sun exposure is the most preventable risk factor for all skin cancers, including melanoma. In most cases, non-melanoma skin cancers are caused by overexposure to ultraviolet radiation – the invisible rays from the sun that can burn the skin. To reduce the risk of skin cancer, dermatologists encourage the public to limit sun exposure and to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Despite these efforts, the incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer continues to rise. Now, several agents – including medicines, foods and vitamins – are being investigated for their chemopreventive properties, or ability to prevent skin cancer
