Five Facts About Skin Cancer: What Products to Use to Prevent Skin Cancer!

Skin Cancer Prevention

Unfortunately, skin cancer just happens to be one of those things that keeps growing in population. Statistics continue to prove how crucial Skin Cancer Prevention is. Here at the Miami Center for Dermatology, Dr. Longwill and her staff strongly prioritize this area of dermatology. To us, it is both cosmetic and medical dermatology. It also comes first, as it is the most severe condition that dermatology professionals have to treat. One in every five people in the United States will get skin cancer at some point. When it comes to Skin Cancer Prevention, our most prioritized goal is early detection. We are committed to taking care of you.

Skin Cancer and Skin Cancer Treatments

Here, at the Miami Center for Dermatology, we provide South Florida with Cosmetic Dermatology services, Medical Dermatology services, and also Skin Cancer treatment. For several reasons, early detection is the key to our work. With earlier detection, we are given more room to work with. However, we like to educate our patients on Skin Cancer Prevention before it ever happens too. Some general facts about skin cancer include the following:

  1. Over the past three years, more Americans have been diagnosed with skin cancer than all other cancers combined.
  2. On a daily basis, it is crucial and strongly recommended that everyone wear a minimum of SPF 35.
  3. Between 40 and 50 Americans of the age 65 will have skin cancer.
  4. One in every five people in America will be diagnosed with skin cancer at some point in their life.
  5. The annual cost of treating skin cancers in the U.S. is estimated at $8.1 billion: about $4.8 billion for nonmelanoma skin cancers and $3.3 billion for melanoma.

Professional Skin Cancer Prevention

The most effective form of Skin Cancer Prevention is proven to be the increasing of public awareness. People need to know the risks of sun exposure. At the Miami Center for Dermatology, our staff strives to provide patients with individualized guidance. Patients who are educated about risk factors for skin cancer are more likely to consider the benefits of clinical screening and to bring malignant lesions to the attention of a health care provider.
