Use Sun Clothing for Sun Protection

Posted by admin

It is important that we use sun protective items including sunscreen, sun clothing, and sunglasses to protect ourselves from the dangers of the sun while enjoying the outdoors.

Why the need for sun protection?

Overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage. This skin damage can range in severity from sunburns and rashes to premature wrinkles and skin cancer. In fact, according to the National Cancer Institute there will be more than an estimated 1 million new cases of skin cancer in 2008. Each year more than 53,600 people in the United States are diagnosed with melanoma (the worst form of skin cancer).

What can we do for protection?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has established a program to teach us how to protect ourselves from overexposure to the sun. The program is called Sunwise. Their sun safety action steps are the following:

  • Do Not Burn
  • Avoid Sun Tanning and Tanning Beds
  • Generously Apply Sunscreen
  • Wear Protective Clothing
  • Seek Shade
  • Use Extra Caution Near Water, Snow and Sand
  • Watch for the UV Index
  • Get Vitamin D Safely

UV index, sun clothing, SPF ratings may be terms that are very new to you. The goal of the Sun Clothing Blog is to inform you about the potential dangers of the sun and provide you information that you can consider for helping you protect yourself and your family.

Skin Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Dr. Shane Chapman, MD discusses Skin Cancer Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treatment. See more at http://www.dermnet.com PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT!!!
Small SCCs evolving from actinic keratosis are treated by electrodesiccation and curettage. Larger tumors or those on or near the vermilion border of the lips are best excised and should

include the subcutaneous fat. Histologic microstaging may help to direct therapy. Tumors thinner than 4 mm can be managed by simple local removal. Patients with lesions that are between 4

and 8 mm thick or that exhibit deep dermal invasion should undergo excision.

Tumors that penetrate through the dermis are staged by the surgeon and treated with several modalities including

excisional surgery and Mohs surgery, neck dissection, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Larger tumors or those about the nose and eyes require special consideration. When SCC metastasizes,

it spreads first to local nodal groups. The combination of Mohs micrographic surgery and sentinel lymphadenectomy may be an option for management of SCCs at high risk for metastasis.

For

those patients who are poor surgical candidates, radiation therapy is also a valid means of removal. Routine follow up and lymph node examination for all patients shoul
