Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is caused by the uncontrollable growth of abnormal skin cells. It is usually detected from an irregular looking mole on your skin. If left untreated, it can develop into a serious fatal illness spreading quickly from the skin into tissues and organs. It is very dangerous. The main cause of skin cancer is the UV rays from the sun. Not all cases of skin cancer are from the sun. In some cases it is inherited through your genes, and unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done.

Many of us enjoy soaking up the son and getting tan, I admit it myself. If people come to the beach on holidays they sit at the beach for most of the day and frazzle their skin.

When you are running around outside for many hours playing your sport in Florida, you don’t realise the effect the sun is having on your skin. That is why you need to wear sunscreen and a hat!
