Skin Cancer Awareness Month is devoted to shining the spotlight on the most common cancer in the United States- skin cancer. It is estimated that about 9,500 people in the US are diagnosed with skin cancer. Fortunately, skin cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. Protecting your skin by wearing sunscreen with SPF 30, seeking shade during peak sun hours, avoiding indoor tanning beds, and getting annual skin checks is crucial for preventing skin cancer.
