The deadliest form of  skin cancer melanoma is a popular killer all over the world, do you know why? Well, the disease is capable of spreading from primary location of the body to all over the body and thus kills the patient. Its scary! and that’s what makes the disease the most deadly cancer. As the cancer cells spread to all parts of the body the treatment becomes close to impossible.

Skin cancer affects mostly to the people who have increased exposure to the UV rays coming from the sun. Sometimes, skin tanning offered at salons and spa centres also trigger cancer. Skin cancer can be prevented by protecting skin from harmful rays.

    In addition to taking good care to protect your skin from the sun, it is important to keep an eye on any potential damage. While most any general practitioner is trained to identify obvious signs of skin cancer, the best approach to ensure that you are safe, is to get regular evaluations by a qualified dermatologist.

    Very true! And as mentioned, it is very important to get any abnormal spots checked by a physician. My father just had to have a small spot removed and tested. Thankfully it was not cancer, but it is always better to have them tested then to let something like that go undetected. Skin cancer is a very serious condition and we all need to take the appropriate precautions.

    I think it is very important to teach children good habits in regards to sun protections. We live in an age where there is so much emphasis put on tanning, it is very important to consciously be instilling good sun protection habits in our children. They will be getting all kinds of pressure from those around them as they get older. But I think that if you can start out teaching children at a young age to protect and care for their skin it will be easier for them to continue that into their teen and adult years.

    This is why it’s good for people to apply products with spf to help block the sun’s harmful rays. People don’t understand that you don’t have to go tanning regularly in order to get skin cancer. It can be caused even by doing daily activities. When you walk into a tanning salon, many of the clerks require customers to show their eye wear goggles the protect their eyes from the UVs. I also think they should require customers to show what skin protection products they are using as well. Of course it’s up to the customer whether or not they apply the product before they go tanning, but I do think it would get more people to think and take more serious action against developing skin cancer.

It is because that human skin neutrally got a high immune and protecting mechanisms. But still people should be very careful on this, as it is recorded as impossible to cure at most times.
