Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Skin Cancer How to prevent and protect your body Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. It occurs when unprepared DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by radiation from sunshine) triggers mutations, or genetic defects, that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumours. It can look like a small slow growth, shiny, pink or red lump or they can also look like red scaly patches. YOU ARE AT RISK! Moles or abnormal moles called dysplastic nevi are at increased risk of skin cancer. Time in the sun can deploy skin cancer, especially if the skin isn't protected by sunscreen or clothing. Sunburns as a child or teenager increases your risk of developing skin cancer as an adult. If one of your parents or a sibling has had skin cancer, you may have an increased risk of the disease. How to reduce your risk You can reduce the risk of skin cancer by avoiding the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Seek shade, especially in the middle of the day when the sun's rays are the strongest. Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, Seek shade and slide on sunnies is one of the most commonly known way to prevent skin cancer. How can the treatment effect you The cancer treatment can affect your body greatly. Mentally it can course how you think as well as how you feel or being mentally exhausted. Physically you may need more sleep because your body would be exhausted and your arms and legs may feel heavy. You may have less desire to do normal activities, like eating, shopping, seeing friends and cleaning.
