Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the US, and each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer. That’s a jaw dropping statistic. Skin cancer can affect anyone, regardless of skin color, gender or age. In fact, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. These facts may be alarming, but because skin cancer is mainly a behavioral disease, it is highly preventable. Meaning, how we protect ourselves from environmental factors can make a big difference.

About 86% of melanomas and 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet or UV rays. That's why applying proper sun protection is critical all year-round. Of melanoma cases... 65% are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun. In today’s program, Dr. Reminga talks about this very important topic in detail. He describes what melanoma is, how common it is, what are the signs of melanoma, what it looks like, and if it can affect the feet and hands. He also provides important information about how to reduce the risks of developing this type of skin cancer. Listen to today’s program about this important topic. The information provided could be lifesaving for you or a loved one some day.

Dr. Daniel Reminga's Weekly Radio Show "Your Feet Your Health" airs every Wednesday at 10 am & 5 pm on WKMJ 93.5FM, WMPL 920AM, WUPY 101.1FM radio. Listen to past recordings here.
