Overexposure to the sun raises its harmful effects on your skin. In some cases, it can lead to skin cancer or melanoma - a most common cancer that has affected many people globally.
Prevention is always better than cure. You must examine your skin regularly to spot changes such as the growth of moles or patches. It is a skin cancer that develops when the melanocytes (the cells that give the skin its color) grow out of control. It is usually spotted on sun-exposed skin. However, skin cancer can also appear in hidden areas.
Routine skin check-ups every year is as important as a regular health check. Early detection of cancer is also a sure shot way to obtain a high success rate in treating cancer. Once it spreads deeper into the skin or other parts of the body, it becomes more challenging to treat.
