National Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month

National Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month

At Loshen & Crem, we advocate using sunscreen to protect your skin from damage and prevent aging. However, the most important reason for applying sun protection is to benefit your health.
As May rolls in, so does National Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month. It's a time to remind ourselves why sunscreen isn't just a beauty essential – it's a health necessity. 
Skin cancer is a frightening diagnosis that affects millions of people each year. Unfortunately, melanoma is responsible for more than 7,000 deaths annually.
The good news is that skin cancer is often preventable, and we can all take simple steps to reduce our risk.
Let's pledge not only this month, but always to protect our skin by wearing protective clothing, seeking shade during peak sun hours, and regularly applying sunscreen with at least SPF 30. By taking these small steps, we can significantly reduce our risk of developing skin cancer.
It's also important to be aware of skin changes and seek medical attention if we notice anything unusual. The ABCDE rule is a helpful tool for identifying potential signs of melanoma, and it's crucial to remember that early detection is key to successful treatment.
- A is for asymmetry – one half of a mole or birthmark does not match the other
- B is for border – the edges of a mole are irregular, ragged, blurred, or notched 
- C is for colour – the colour of a mole is not the same throughout or has different shades of brown, black, or tan
- D is for diameter – the size of a mole is larger than a pencil eraser 
- E is for evolving – a mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape, or colour
May is National Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month. Whether you have been personally affected by skin cancer or know someone who has, this month is a chance for all of us to come together and support each other in the fight against skin cancer. By educating ourselves, taking action, and spreading awareness, we can make a significant difference in the future of skin cancer prevention.
