Skin Cancer Prevention

  • All cancers can appear following sunlight, either in the form of a chronic sun exposure (non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC): basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma) or through repeated acute bouts of UV exposure (melanoma)
  • Before this, skin aging (ageing) (photoaging (photoageing)) and precancerous skin conditions can appear
  • The prevention of these changes imply behavioral factors in addition to the regular and methodical application of sunscreens.


  • The following video of the American Academy of Dermatology goes through the following:
    • Sun avoidance: (shade, water, sand, snow)
    • Choice of clothing, wearing of a wide-brimmed hat, and sunscreen application
    • Vitamin D supplementation
    • Self tanners
    • The danger of tanning beds
    • Detecting skin cancers early through skin checks
