How can I reduce risk of skin cancer?
Skin cancer is certainly something that we all as individuals need to be vigilant about, as the rates of skin cancer are increasing here in the UK and also in Europe. It is really important is that one uses an adequate sunscreen, that contains both UVA and UVB protection.
And really, really important as well as in adults in the pediatric or with children as well, really, really important to use adequate sunscreen. Very important to get any worrisome moles or any lesions on the skin looked at and we do that here at Clinica by examining them under a dermatoscope, which gives us a very, very good detail and very close look at any particular lesions that one is worried about.
