Too much exposure to the sun is on of the main reasons people get (strong)skin cancer(/strong), in fact, more than 90% of all skin cancers are found on parts of the body which typically get the most sun exposure like the face, neck, ears, hands, and arms.
Overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays (UV rays) is what causes the skin cancer and can be prevented by simply applying the correct amount of sunscreen when you know you will be around sun exposure. Just as dangerous as the sun are UV rays from artificial sources like tanning beds or sunlamps.

The three main types of skin cancer are basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and melanoma. In the Skin Cancer Section of this website, we talk a bit about the ABCDE system as a guide to detect signs of skin cancer in moles or growths on the skin.

People with skin types that burn easily and do not tan are at highest risk for skin cancers and also, anyone who has had severe sunburns or many sunburns is at high risk for skin cancers.

Sun Damage
