May is Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.  Did you know that it only takes 15 minutes for the sun to damage your skin, but 12 hours for that damage to become visible?  Many individuals suffer from hours of skin damage before even realizing that their skin is in danger.

Since skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States, you should keep these prevention tips in mind:

• Try to stay out of the sun between 10 am and 4 pm.

• Wear clothes with tightly woven fabric and a hat that shades your face, neck and ears.

• Wear sunscreen every day that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15.

• Routinely inspect your skin, and if you suspect that a spot on your skin is new or changed color or appearance, contact a dermatologist.
