Is the incidence of skin cancer on the rise?

According to a recent study, the incidence of skin cancer may reach “epidemic” proportion. The study was published in the March 2010 issue of Archives of Dermatology. We recommend sun protection with a proper sunblock and re-application of the sunblock approximately every 2 hours while in the sun. Look for any skin lesions that may have changed color, shape, and/or have irregular borders. If you are ever concerned about a lesion on the face, call us for an appointment for further evaluation.
