A lot of people think that skin cancer isn’t that serious so I’d like to tell you some facts about skin cancer. In the United States there will be over 1 million cases of skin cancer this year and every year and very sadly, one American dies every hour from melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer. A single blistering sunburn in childhood or adolescence more than doubles your chance of getting melanoma as an adult. All Caucasians who live to the age of 65 in the United States will have a 40-50% chance of developing either a basal cell cancer or a squamous cell cancer. And lastly, the UVA rays, which are the rays that cause skin cancer, are the same everywhere, all day, all the time. They’re the same all seasons and it doesn’t matter whether it’s high noon or the early part of the day. So remember, I don’t tell people to stay out of the sun, I tell people how to protect their skin in the sun. Wear sunscreen all the time everyday.
