Skin CancerSkin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in Colombia due, among other factors, to excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation that Colombians undergo without protection. Other reasons that can cause or contribute to the appearance of this disease include genetic predisposition, use of certain chemicals, or serious and prolonged skin damage.
This type of cancer manifests itself with the appearance of skin abnormalities such as spots, moles or wounds on the neck, face, among other areas of the human body. Among the most important protection measures, it is advisable to avoid direct sun exposure throughout the year, regardless of the weather; use sunscreen daily (SPF greater than 30), and wear clothing that properly covers the skin.
A timely diagnosis is the best measure to fight skin cancer. If you have abnormalities in your skin such as those mentioned above, see a dermatologist as soon as possible for proper study and diagnosis.
