I have always practiced and preached extreme caution and avoidance of exposure to the sun. I see cases of skin cancer in people all around me due to poor preventative practices earlier in their lives. But there’s more to it than just your skin’s surface.
Do Skin Cancers Relate to Internal Cancers?
Studies have now found that people who have had non-melanoma skin cancer have a 36 percent higher risk of developing another cancer than do people with no history of it. In those people, the risk of developing most other primary cancers—including cancer of the salivary glands, bone and upper gastrointestinal tract—were increased.
Elevated risks have also been found for cancers of the colon or rectum, breast, kidney, and prostate, among others.
So What Should You Do?
If you have ever had skin cancer, make cancer screening a priority. In addition to regular skin checks, be sure to ask your doctor about a comprehensive cancer screening schedule. Be safe, not sorry.
Get the best protection from the sun for your skin and, at the same time, help prevent photoaging, characterized by wrinkles, loose skin, brown spots and leathery appearance.
