There are different types of skin cancers, but melanoma is the deadliest form. And, some people are more at-risk than others. Do you have blonde or red hair? Are your eyes light in color? Is your skin pale and/or freckled? Sometimes we are given lemons with which to deal, but we CAN take action.
The first step is to become aware of your risk factors. (Visit your dermatologist annually to learn more.) Then, take proactive and preventative steps to stay aware and vigilant.
