Let’s talk about Skin Cancers
According to the website skincancer.org, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. An increase in awareness in skin cancer is significant since the link between UltraViolet exposure and skin cancer is well established. A lot of people especially during summer holidays bathe in the sun for long periods not knowing that it could pose a risk in the development of skin cancer. Of course there are other factors to consider that contributes to its development but I think it is useful for all of us to be aware about skin cancer so that we can be vigilant enough in having it checked when needed for prevention purposes. ////// Email: NursetalksIG@aol.com
