Dr. Judith McKenzie is warning her patients about the risk of skin cancer.
People with frequent or intense sun exposure or with a family history, are at special risk.
Use SPF 15 or higher sunscreen and sun protective clothing. It is also helpful to limit your amount of time outdoors.
Early detection is the key. See your doctor if you have any noticeable changes to your skin.
