Skin cancer is on the rise in young people. This includes both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. The risk is increased in those with fair skin, sunburns and tanning bed use. Don’t kid yourself by saying it won’t happen to you. Make the decision to protect yourself and avoid tanning beds. If you do have a history of sunburns or tanning bed use, please make sure you are getting a skin cancer check at least once a year.
