May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Skin cancer is the most common of all types of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet radiation from the sunlight or tanning beds is the most common cause. When in the sun, seek shade, cover up, get a hat, wear sunglasses, and use sunscreen. It can save your life. Get to know your skin and recognize any changes to moles, or the appearance of sores or growths. Lakeside Community Healthcare features board certified dermatologists ready to help you with all of your skin-health needs.
