Safety Corner--Sun Safe According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in North America. The main cause? The sun’s dangerous rays. Here’s some advice to keep you sun safe. Apply sunscreen 15 to 30 minutes before you go outside. Best bet: Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30. Use a generous amount of sunscreen – dermatologists recommend “1 ounce, enough to fill a shot glass.” Reapply sunscreen every 2 hours and after sweating or swimming, as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology. Check if any medications you are taking cause sensitivity to the sun. Wear specially treated clothing and sunglasses to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
MMH offers a free skin screening clinic the third Tuesday of each month. for an appointment, please call MMH Surgical Group at 315-769-4656.
