Fun in the sun! (or not?)

December is holiday time and that means being outside and enjoying our South African sun!

 

As much fun as the sun can be, it can also be dangerous and we should all be aware of the dangers of skin damage, especially the sun’s role in skin cancer.

 

Skin cancer happens when normal cells in the skin change into abnormal cells. Skin cancer can occur anywhere on the skin, but is often on the head, face, neck, back of the hands, arms, and legs. This is because those body parts are most exposed to the sun’s rays.Skin cancer is often caused by sun exposure and sunburn. In fact, the damaging effects of the sun build up over time. The more you are exposed to the sun (or to tanning beds) in your life, the higher your risk of skin cancer.
Most forms of skin cancer can be easily treated because they grow slowly. But if not treated, some skin cancers can become large or spread inside the body.
What does skin cancer look like?:

 

Lesions can be:

●Pink or dark
●Red and swollen
●Peeling
●Bleeding or look like an open sore
●Thick or crusty

 

Worried about a skin lesions? We can help put your worries to rest! We offer a variety of treatments.

A happy festive season to all our patients!  We look forward to looking after your health in 2019.
