Awareness of Skin Cancer

Hello Ladies,

Today I’m going to talk to you about “Skin Cancer”. To start off, are there any ladies out there who can tell me that they don’t care about their skin? If you’re out there come forward and let’s talk. For me, of course I care, I’m a lady who loves to catch attention, walk around and have everyone say, “You have nice skin it’s, flawless”. Now that the weather is changing we need to be aware of Skin Cancer.

What is Skin Cancer? Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. If left unchecked, these cancer cells can spread from the skin into other tissues and organs.

Skin Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2007, 58,094 people in the U.S. were diagnosed with melanomas, and 8,461 died of the disease, according to the CDC’s recent data. This year, the American Academy of Dermatology estimated that there will be 123,590 new cases of melanoma skin cancer diagnosed in the U.S.
Do you want to be among those numbers I just mentioned above? Avoid cancer, stop with the artificial tanning , it’s time to protect your skin, there goes the Sun Tan Lotion for you.

To prevent skin cancer you should wear sunscreen and avoid too much Sun. Please, choose to be safe and healthy while enjoying the wonderful Spring weather.

  1. I agree with you Aimee. I think that Dark skin complex populations need to be aware that skin cancer is not just occuring in the white population.I sounded like an ignorant, one day, when I expressed my surprise that black people get tanned. But it does happen and we have to take care of ourselves.
