“Take charge of your skin health today and make UV protection a priority.”
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.
Monitor your skin for any changes, such as new moles, growths, or suspicious spots. If you notice anything unusual, consult a dermatologist for further evaluation.
Remember that protecting your skin from UV rays is essential for preventing skin cancer and maintaining healthy skin.
