For many families, especially those with young children, this often includes stick and spray sunscreens in addition to lotions.

American Academy of Dermatology Provides Tips for Skin Self-Exams

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. It is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. In recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month in May and Melanoma Monday® on May 7, the American Academy of Dermatology is encouraging the public to be a “Skin Cancer Hero” by learning how to detect skin cancer early, when it’s most treatable. The campaign aims to save lives by teaching the public how to identify the warning signs of melanoma, perform a skin self-exam and find free SPOTme® skin cancer screenings in their area.
