Stay Sun Safe: Celebrate Melanoma Prevention Month with Us

Dear Patients,


As May is National Melanoma/Skin

Cancer Detection and Prevention Month,

I want to take a moment to remind you of

the importance of taking care of your skin

and getting regular check-ups.


Melanoma and skin cancer are

serious conditions that can be

life-threatening if not caught early.

However, with early detection and

treatment, the prognosis is much better.

Here are some things you can do to

reduce your risk of developing skin cancer:


1. Protect your skin from the

sun by wearing protective clothing,

using sunscreen with SPF 30 or

higher, seeking shade, and avoiding

outdoor activities during peak sun

hours.


2. Avoid indoor tanning, which has

been linked to an increased risk

of skin cancer.


3. Examine your skin regularly for any

changes in moles or freckles, and

report any suspicious changes to

your healthcare provider right away.

4. Get regular skin cancer screenings,

especially if you have a family

history of skin cancer or other risk

factors.


Remember, prevention is key

when it comes to melanoma and

skin cancer. By taking steps to

protect your skin and getting regular

check-ups, you can reduce your risk

and catch any potential problems early.

If you have any questions or concerns

about your skin health, please don't

hesitate to reach out to me or another

healthcare provider.


Come and see us for your skin

health check up soon!


With love,


Renée
