Great to be part of those offering free skin cancer screenings at St. John Medical Center this past week

We enjoyed being part of the community of doctors/health care workers that offered our community free skin cancer screenings this week.  Little by little we are creating an awareness of the factors causing skin cancer and which patients are especially vulnerable.

  1. Skin Cancer:avoid any cosmetics that have tar in them. Tar can potentially cause skin cancer, if used on a regular basis. In addition to cosmetics, some psoriasis treatments and shampoos may also contain tar. Check your labels carefully! Know your family history. One of the causes of skin cancer is genetics. If you have members in your family that have had skin cancer, you may be at more of a risk to get it as well.
