uv tanning beds cause skin cancer

Most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. The greatest UV exposure comes from the sun, but indoor tanning beds and sun lamps also contribute.

  • Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Reapply every 2 hours.
  • Seek shade when outdoors, especially between the hours of 10 AM – 4 PM
  • Wear sunglasses that block UV rays
  • Protect your face by wearing a hat when outdoors
  • Avoid tanning beds and sun lamps
  • A is for Asymmetry
  • One half of the spot is unlike the other half
  • B is for Border irregularity
    The spot has an irregular, scalloped, or poorly defined border
  • C is for Color that varies
    The spot has varying colors from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown or black, or areas of white, red, or blue
  • D is for Diameter larger than 6 mm, about the size of a pencil eraser
    While melanomas are usually greater than 6 millimeters, when diagnosed, they can be smaller
