Protecting Your Skin: The Link Between Ultraviolet Rays and Skin Cancer Awareness.

by | Jul 20, 2023 | Cancer Awareness

“Take charge of your skin health today and make UV protection a priority.”

Ultraviolet rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation released by the sun. While UV radiation is necessary for vitamin D synthesis and has certain health benefits, prolonged exposure to UV rays can be hazardous and raise the chance of getting skin cancer.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer worldwide, and excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a major risk factor.

UV rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun. They are categorized into three types: UVA, UVB, and UVC.

UVA and UVB radiation can cause DNA damage in skin cells, resulting in mutations and the growth of malignant cells. Melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) are the two main kinds of skin cancer. Melanoma is less common but more aggressive, whereas NMSC, which includes basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, is more common but less harmful.

This blog will look at the link between UV rays and skin cancer, emphasizing the need for prevention, early detection, and raising awareness.
