Spring Open House at Dermatology Northwest

Thursday May 8, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM PDT

Dermatology Northwest Keizer/Wilsonville

Hi everyone,
I was fortunate  to go on my first ever cruise to the western Caribbean. I really debated going in to a tanning booth before I left but never had time.  I did use a self tanner on my legs so I wasn't totally stark white.  I really enjoyed the whole cruising experience and yes, I laid in the sun BUT....... I lathered up with sunscreen every morning before I left our room.  I enjoyed laying around the pool for a couple of hours  in the morning and I never got burnt.  I even got my husband to lather up because he has skin that turns red when he looks at the sun and he really did well also. It is really nice how the pool area is set up because there are a lot of options in the shade but you can still be pool side and watch all the action. The bad news is I can barely see a tan line but I knew I would come back to Oregon, cover up and it would fade before our summer comes anyway.  Oh Ya,  I also had this huge brimmed hat that I wore.
It is nice with all these great sunscreens that you can still be outside and active.  You don't have to change your life style but you really should protect your skin. Here is some great information on preventing skin cancer.

Preventing skin cancer
  • Never use a tanning bed or sun lamp. (tanning beds can increase your risk of melanoma by 75%)
  • Wear sunscreen and lip balm every day. (UVA/UVB broad spectrum, at least SPF 30)  
  • Wear clothes that protect you from UV rays. (Heavy materials can block rays but a see through Tshirt has little UV protection, There are protect ants that you can add to your laundry)  
  • Wear sunglasses that offer UV protection every day.
  • Try not to spend time outdoors between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Finding skin cancer
  • Perform skin self-exams. This can help you find skin cancer early when it can be cured. Look for anything changing, growing, or bleeding.  Use a mirror to exam every part of your skin.  
  • Get screened for skin cancer. (Especially if light colored eyes, skin and hair, skin that burns and freckles, more than 50 moles, history of indoor tanning or sunburns.
May is Skin Cancer Awareness month - 
so check your skin!
Skin Cancer Facts

GENERAL

  • Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in over two million people are diagnosed annually. 
  • One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. 
  • Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer; an estimated 2.8 million are diagnosed annually in the US. BCCs are rarely fatal, but can be highly disfiguring if allowed to grow. 
  • Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common form of skin cancer. An estimated 700,000 cases of SCC are diagnosed each year in the US. 
  • Half of all adults report at least one sunburn in the past 12 months.

 

MELANOMA

  • One person dies of melanoma every hour (every 57 minutes).
  • The NW has the highest occurrence of Melanoma in the country. 
  • 1 in 50 men and women will be diagnosed with melanoma of the skin during their lifetime. 
  • Regular daily use of an SPF 15 or higher sunscreen reduces the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 40 percent and the risk of developing melanoma by 50 percent.

 

TANNING 55  

  • One indoor UV tanning session increases users' risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma by 67 percent and basal cell carcinoma by 29 percent. 
  • Just one indoor tanning session increases users' chances of developing melanoma by 20 percent, and each additional session during the same year boosts the risk almost another two percent. 
  • Of melanoma cases among 18-to-29-year-olds who had tanned indoors, 76 percent were attributable to tanning bed use.
  • People who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent.

SKIN AGING
