Reduce Your Risk of Skin Cancer

Tips to follow in order to avoid skin cancer include:

How common is skin cancer?

Skin cancer, the majority of the time, can be cured if caught and treated early. Skin cancer is known as the most common form of cancer in the United States. There are around three and a half million types of skin cancer and two million people are diagnosed yearly. Every year there are more new cases of skin cancer, and over the past three decades, more people have had skin cancer than any other cancer combined. 

What types of foods can prevent skin cancer from occurring? 

Antioxidants such as retinol are vital for a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that a higher intake of foods that are rich in retinol such as fish, milk, eggs, leafy vegetables, orange ,and yellow fruits have led to a 20 percent decrease in developing melanoma, which is the most dangerous form of skin cancer. 

What are skin blemishes? 

A skim blemish is any type of mark, spot, or flaw that appears on one's skin. Blemishes, for the most part, are benign and not life-threatening, but some can signal skin cancer ,however. Seeking medical treatment can definitely reduce the appeareance of blemishes, and lowers the risk of getting skin cancer.
