Guard your Glow: Skin Cancer Awareness & Special May Offers

May brings not only the promise of spring but also an important reminder of health and prevention with Skin Cancer and Melanoma Awareness Month. At Bayou City Dermatology, we are committed to educating our community about the critical importance of skin health, including the life-saving benefits of routine skin exams.

The Importance of Routine Skin Exams

Routine skin exams are a cornerstone of preventing skin cancer. These exams help detect early signs of skin cancer, making treatment more straightforward and less invasive. During a skin exam, dermatologists look for any new or changed moles, freckles, or spots that might be precursors to skin conditions, including cancerous and precancerous lesions.

We recommend scheduling a full-body skin examination at least once a year, or more frequently if you have a personal or family history of skin cancer. Remember, early detection plays a significant role in the successful treatment of skin cancers, including melanoma, which can be deadly if overlooked.

Tips for Early Detection and Prevention

In addition to routine exams, protecting your skin from harmful UV radiation is crucial. Here are some tips to help prevent and detect skin cancer early:

  • Use Sunscreen Daily: Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply it generously on all exposed skin, even on cloudy days and during winter months.
  • Wear Protective Clothing: Long-sleeved shirts, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses can provide extra protection.
  • Seek Shade: Avoid direct sunlight between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun's rays are strongest.
  • Avoid Tanning Beds: Tanning beds emit harmful UV radiation which can increase your risk of skin cancer.
  • Perform Self-Exams: Check your skin monthly for any new or changing marks. This is a good way to detect potential skin cancers early.
