Did you know May is skin cancer awareness month?

Do you know what skin cancer is and what causes it?

Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. There are multiple causes to skin cancer. Skin mutations and genetic defects are the leading cause. This can occur from over exposure to Ultraviolet Radiation either from sunshine or tanning beds. The mutations of the skin caused by these factors often lead to the skins cells to multiply rapidly forming malignant tumors.

Question is; “Did you put sun screen on today?” and “How often are you in the tanning bed?”
