7 Things You Never Knew About Detecting Skin Cancer

How to Detect Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is certainly not the most thrilling beauty topic, but it's unquestionably one of the most important — no matter what time of year it is. Even if you haven't been on a beach in months, there are some areas of our skin that are exposed to the harmful UV radiation on a regular basis, which means that we're pretty much at risk all the time.

While all of this sounds utterly depressing, the good news is that most skin cancers can be treated or removed if detected early. There are, however, certain types that are caused by factors other than UV exposure — such as genetics or environmental influences. It can also develop on parts of the body rarely exposed to the sun. If you thought you knew everything there is to know about skin cancer, hear what two derms, who are both well-versed on the topic, have to say — and more importantly how to protect yourself.

When it comes skin and sun safety, there's no such thing as knowing too much.
