Recognition of Skin Cancer and Common Skin Disorders

and Craft Talk.


The take home message was to be careful when going out in the sun to help prevent skin cancer.

Use sunscreens, avoid peak sun hours of 10AM- 2PM, wear protective clothing and a hat.

Melanoma incidence is on the rise and should be detected early and treated early to prevent

spread and a worsened prognosis. Any mole that is irregular in color or shape, itching, burning

or bleeding should be examined and biopsied.


Next Week:
