Mother's Day &

Melanoma Awareness Month

At Sima Clinic, month of May holds two important events- Mother's Day and Melanoma awareness. This gives us the opportunity to remind you to get your skin checked!  If you have spent any time outdoors or in tanning salons, this is a necessity. Skin cancer is prevalent but very curable, especially if caught early. Melanoma can be deadly if not caught in time. So, don't be scared, just come see us!
 
To thank the mothers among us, we have some great gift ideas. 
Happy Mother's Day!

Skin Cancer Fact Sheet from Academy of Dermatology
 
  • More than 3.5 million skin cancers in more than 2 million people are diagnosed in the United States annually.
  • Current estimates are that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
  • On average, one American dies from melanoma every hour.
  • An estimated 87,110 new cases of invasive melanoma will be diagnosed in the U.S. in 2017.
  •  An estimated 9,730 people will die of melanoma in 2017.
  • Melanoma incidence rates in Caucasians are 5 times higher than in Hispanics and 20 times higher than in African Americans.
  • Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old.
  • Melanoma is increasing faster in females 15-29 years old than males in the same age group.

 

Risk factors
  
  • The major risk factor for melanoma of the skin is exposure to ultraviolet light.
  • Research found that daily sunscreen use cut the incidence of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, in half.
  • Increasing intermittent sun exposure in childhood and during one's lifetime is associated with an increased risk of squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
  • Exposure to tanning beds increases the risk of melanoma, especially in women aged 45 years or younger.
  • In females 15-29 years old, the torso/trunk is the most common location for developing melanoma, which may be due to high-risk tanning behaviors.
  • People with more than 50 moles, atypical moles, light skin, freckles, or a family history of melanoma are at an increased risk of developing melanoma.
 
Prevention & Detection
 
  • Since exposure to ultraviolet light is the most preventable risk factor for all skin cancers, the American Academy of Dermatology encourages everyone to protect their skin by applying sunscreen, seeking shade and wearing protective clothing.
  • Warning signs of melanoma include changes in size, shape, or color of a mole or other skin lesion, or the appearance of a new growth on the skin.
