My husband took a specific medicine for his acne problem when he was younger. It cured his acne alright but later on, it caused a bad side effect on his skin. He said that the doctor advised him to stay away from sun exposure as his skin gets easily get burns ever since he took the medicine. So now, he is very cautious when going out in the sun. Knowing the cancer history in his family, he seems to be paranoid of what the doctor have told him before. He was never diagnosed of any skin cancer but I think that it is better to have it checked. I found Molemap Skin Cancer online, its a place that has state of the art facility that can detect melanoma cancer. You can check out some risks and symptoms of melanoma by visiting http://www.nztimberpools.co.nz. They are dedicated in helping you or your family member to prevent melanoma cancer by detecting the disease early.
As you can see in the illustration above, 2.3% of skin cancer is melanoma and looking at the number of death from melanoma scares me. According to the website, here are the risk factors:
- Fair skin
- Light Colored Hair
- Blue or Green Eyes
- Sunbed Use
- Family History of skin cancer
- History of Sunburn
