  • WATCHFUL EYE Like most cancers early detection is key

She advises self-checks every month, and check-ups with either a dermatologist or physician at least once a year.

"All you have to do is slap on an orange sticker, snap your picture, share it on orangesticker.org and stick it to skin cancer", she said.

Melanomas are most commonly found on the chest and back in men and on the legs in women, according to the American Cancer Society, but they're also likely to show up on the neck and face in both sexes.

"We're not there yet", said Dr. Landon Johnson a Dermatologist with Moeller Dermatology.

Although lighter skin puts you at increased risk of skin cancer, all persons should be carefully watching for new moles or moles that change. "Protecting your skin from the sun is step one".

Unemployment drops to 3.9 percent in April
The optics of a 3.9% unemployment rate (i.e., breaking through the 4.0% barrier) carry that perception an important step further. While average hourly earnings have suggested only a gradual increase in wage inflation, other measures have been more robust.

The campaign aims to save lives by teaching the public how to identify the warning signs of melanoma, perform a skin self-exam and find free SPOTme® skin cancer screenings in their area. As much as 90% of melanoma is estimated to be caused by UV exposure, and UV exposure is the most preventable cause of cancer!

"If not", she says, use these others methods: "stay under an umbrella, and if you go in the water and you get wet even if your sunscreen says it's waterproof know that it's still going to wash off", said Dr. Kulkarni.

"I would plead with farmers to get their skin checked", says Sturgeon.

So what can we do to prevent skin cancer? Of that, more than 9,000 people will die from the disease.

That means avoiding midday sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., using sunscreen that's SPF 30 or higher, wearing shirts and hats, and never getting a "base tan" before a trip.
