How to Protect Yourself
Prevention is the best way to combat all types of skin cancer, including melanoma. Florida is home to some of the best beaches in the country; however, overexposure to sunlight is one of the leading causes of melanoma. Protect yourself with a hat, sunglasses, and protective clothing. Most importantly, use SPF-30 sunscreen or higher. The next time you’re enjoying the beach, or any outdoor activity, it’s important that you protect yourself from the sun.
