Quick – what’s the one thing you can do right now that will improve your odds of living a long and healthy life?
Forget drinking a kale smoothie or logging hours on the treadmill. One of the best ways to make sure you enjoy a long life is to check yourself for signs of skin cancer.
Unfortunately, skin cancer is on the rise, with deadly melanoma being one of the most diagnosed cancers in younger people (particularly women) under the age of 30. Given all we know about sunscreen and keeping safe under the summer sun, it’s more important than ever to educate yourself on the signs of skin cancer.
Fortunately, it’s incredibly easy to perform your own skin cancer check – all you need is a hand mirror, a bathroom mirror, and a few minutes of your time!
It’s important to do this skin cancer check at least every six months, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors. At this frequency, you can stay vigilant for signs of skin cancer.
If you spot any dark or oddly colored moles, pink lesions, or bumps that look like pimples, you should schedule a consultation with a dermatologist or skin cancer specialist right away.
