How to Check tanning and skin cancer|melanoma treatment Early detection of skin cancer is important and can be lifesaving, especially for certain types of skin cancer such as melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It is estimated that 76,380 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in 2016 and over 13,000 will die from the skin cancer.[1] Given that timing is so crucial to diagnosing and treating skin cancer, you should follow a few simple steps to learn how to detect skin cancer on your skin 1 Perform a skin survey. The best way to check yourself for skin cancer is to do a self-examination, or survey. When performing your skin survey, choose a particular day during the month and note it on the calendar. Evaluate each area of your skin, leaving no part unseen. After you look at all the easily seen areas, use a mirror to evaluate the genitals, the anal area, between the toes, your back, and any other hard to see area. It may be helpful to have an image of a body chart and check off areas as you check them on yourself, as well as make note of any moles or markings you find. You can find one of these online, For examining your scalp, enlist the help of a friend, partner, or spouse. Part your hair in small sections looking and feeling for erosions, scales, or discolored lesions. With the advent of tanning booths and full-body tans, you can end up with skin cancer on the vulva and penis. Take your skin survey seriously and leave no surface unexamined. The best way to adequately perform this survey is to know what each different kind of skin cancer looks like 2 Watch out for basal cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It is most often found in the sun-exposed areas of the head, including the ears and neck. It is erosive in nature, which means the local skin invasion of the cancer eats into the tissue it affects. It metastasizes, or spreads, to other sites on the body. Risk factors for this include sun exposure, tanning bed use,

How to tanning and skin cancer |melanoma treatment Skin cancer is best defined as the abnormal growth of skin cells, often due to too much sun exposure, but there are other factors to consider also.[1] There are three main types of skin cancer, which are named based on which layer of skin is affected: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Melanoma is the rarest form, but also the most deadly type because it's most likely to spread to other parts of the body. Checking your skin for unusual changes on a regular basis can help detect cancer in its early stages, which gives you the best chance of successful treatment. 1 Focus on skin most exposed to the sun. Although skin cancer can develop anywhere on the body, it's most likely to occur on areas with the most sun exposure.[2] It's the UV radiation in the sun that damages the DNA of skin cells and makes them mutate into cancer cells. Thus, spend more time checking parts of your body that get the most sun, such as your scalp, face (especially your nose), ears, neck, upper chest, forearms and hands. Look for unusual marks and blemishes on your skin, especially new growths (see below). It's obviously a good idea to not let certain areas get constant sun exposure, but some outdoor jobs make it difficult. If you can't always cover skin up, then apply a strong sunscreen that blocks out UV radiation. Women tend to be more susceptible to skin cancer on their legs and upper arms because they wear skirts, shorts and halter tops. Check your skin for unusual spots while you're naked (just prior to bathing, for example) so you can see as much of your skin as possible. Use a magnifying glass if your eyesight is poor. 2 Determine your risk factors. Some people are more susceptible to skin cancer than others because they have more risk factors. The main risk factors currently identified include: fair skin with freckles, red hair, over-exposure to UV radiation (from the sun or tanning beds), history of serious

Aging of the skin occurs as a result of sun exposure, smoking and pollution. There are a myriad of anti- aging therapies touted to reverse the signs of sun damage. Do they work? Dr. Debra Price, Miami dermatologist discusses a variety of cosmaceutical anti-aging ingredients. She says, the jury is still out on coenzyme Q and other antioxidant ingredients. Her conclusion then and now is that retinol is still the best over the counter anti- aging ingredient. She also says that wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen daily is a must. In addition, the order of ingredients listed in a skin care product is important. If an active ingredient is on the bottom of the list, it is probably present in too low a concentration to really make a difference. She also reminds us that the people behind skin care sales counters are sales personnel. They are there to sell you skin care products, so do your homework.

BY: YIQIAN ZHANG ANCHOR: JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource health video news analysis from Newsy. Banning -- Tanning for Teens. Good health policy? Or a big government overstep? It’s an argument, back under the lights once again. The American Academy of Pediatrics is supporting legislation to ban tanning for children under 18. Dermatologist David Fisher tells CNN kids are -- quote -- “less capable of making responsible decisions.” FISHER: "There have been a few instances where statements have been made that [ultraviolet rays] are healthy because of vitamin D. That's an extremely irresponsible concept that leads children or parents to think, 'It isn't so bad. What's wrong with looking good for prom?'" To that, a tanning salon owner tells KCRG there’s no need for government intervention. After all -- parents can look after and make decisions FOR their teens. HENDERSON: “A number of the people that age who come in to tan actually come in with their parents. They come in because they’re going on a trip and they don’t want their child overexposed.” A blogger for the San Francisco Chronicle agrees -- this might be more a matter of parental responsibility. “…[the doctors’] efforts to protect children and adolescents from dangerous and unregulated UVR over-exposure have contributed to progress, but minors continue to visit indoor tanning salons. Until the laws change, parents are the gatekeepers.” A blogger for The St. Louis Post-Dispatch suggests – this isn’t about government control. “Before there's a scream against the ‘nanny state’ and the government regulating everything, remember… It's coming from the front-line physicians who provide medical care for the teenage girls who show up in their offices with melanoma or other forms of cancer.” So what do you think? Should teen tanning be banned -- or should teens -- and parents -- get to decide for themselves? Follow Newsy on Twitter Newsy_Videos to receive daily updates.

Dr. Lam's patient talks about her experience follow nose cancer reconstruction a week and two weeks after her procedure. For more information, please visit www.lamfacialplastics****. Skin cancer has become an alarming epidemic today. The incidence of melanoma has steadily increased in an exponential fashion over the past several decades. Fortunately, people are becoming more educated about preventative measures, such as topical sun protection (SPF) agents and general avoidance of prolonged sun exposure. Early detection and treatment have facilitated better survival rates and avoidance of the need for extensive, disfiguring surgical resection. Dr. Lam has trained extensively in removal of skin cancer and reconstruction of the defect in the most aesthetically restorative method with a diverse array of "flap" techniques. At times, multi-stage procedures will provide the best option for effective camouflage of extensive defects or defects that reside in particular facial zones. But, oftentimes, a single surgical procedure is sufficient to restore the patient to a normal appearance. Dr. Lam is very sensitive about the ultimate aesthetic appearance and will not compromise in his goal to provide the best surgical solution for the patient. Dr. Lam is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has authored three major facial plastic surgery textbooks, including Comprehensive Facial Rejuvenation: A Practical and Systematic Guide to the Aging Face, Cosmetic Surgery of the Asian Face, and the recently published Complementary Fat Grafting. Dr. Lam has also published over 100 book chapters and scientific articles on the subject of facial plastic surgery and lectures nationally almost on a monthly basis on facial plastic surgery and has lectured over 100 times to date.

In recognition of Skin Cancer Awareness Month this May, Olay and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) have joined forces for the fourth year for "Skin Cancer Takes Friends," a nationwide free skin cancer screening program that encourages Americans to bring their friends to a participating dermasurgeon's office for a free skin cancer screening. Together with "Desperate Housewives" star Marcia Cross, Olay and the ASDS are working to raise awareness about the importance of prevention and detection in the fight against skin cancer. More than one million Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer this year. This is an astounding number for one of the few cancers where the cause of the majority of cases is known: excessive sun exposure. While some people are more at risk than others, anyone, regardless of skin color or age, can develop skin cancer. To view Multimedia News Release, go to *******www.prnewswire****/mnr/olay/33046/
