These clinical skin exams are very useful in early detection of skin cancers. It is recalled that the earlier we find skin cancer, the easier is to treat it successfully.
Skin cancer can affect anyone, but it is more common with people of lighter skin, light-colored eyes, blond or red hair who burn easily and have difficulty tanning. Other risks factors for suffering from skin cancer are: existence of personal and family history of skin cancer; presence of numerous moles on the body; people who, particularly during childhood or adolescence, have had sunstroke or repeated and violent sunburn; professions which perform activities in the open air with daily exposure to the sun (employees of the construction sector, farmers, fishermen, etc.)
The dermatologist is the medical professional best qualified to guide, detect, and determine the degree of benignity or malignity and to treat skin lesions suspected of skin cancer.
At times of high sun exposure, such as the summer, it is important to take steps to protect yourself.
Skin cancer rates have risen in recent years. Fortunately, however, the mortality rate for skin cancer has stabilised.
It is particularly important to protect children against the sun in order to prevent both the immediate negative effects and the possible consequences in later life.
Sunscreen is essential to keep our skin healthy, as it prevents sunburn, signs of ageing and skin cancer.
Sunlight is essential for life, and it benefits us in many ways. Although everyone needs exposure to sunlight, it is important to take suitable precautions.
The mission of our Skin Cancer Prevention Program, IDERMA Prevent, is to increase public awareness regarding the dangers of over exposure to sunlight and the practice of sun-safety behaviors and to decrease future incidence of new cases of skin cancer among our patients.
IDERMA is very experienced in treating skin cancer, a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the tissue of the skin.
