A Healthy Message from Northeastern Health System-Tahlequah Chief of Staff Dr. Brent Rotton.

It’s May. Do you know where your sunscreen is? For years, doctors have been warning use about the dangers sun exposure and skin cancer. As the link between lifetime sun exposure and skin cancer becomes even clearer, it’s important to have sunscreen and to use it correctly.

For many people, May and Memorial Day kick off the summer season.   This makes for a good time to encourage safe sun behavior. Just five or more sunburns during your life can double your risk of developing skin cancer. This year, more than a million Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer, and more than half of all new cancer diagnosis made in the United States is skin cancers.

Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer, and it accounts for 73 percent of skin cancer deaths.  In spite of educational efforts emphasizing the risks of sun exposure and the need for sunscreens, the incidence of melanoma and other skin cancers is increasing significantly.

Follow these tips to protect yourself from the sun:

 

  • Stay out of the sun during peak hours: 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. As much as possible, keep infants under the age of six months out of the sun entirely.
  • If you must be outside, seek shade. In order to be effective your entire body must be in complete shade. But, limit even this exposure since someone in the shade is exposed to reflective light.
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when outside. A long sleeved shirt, long pants and shoes provide even more protection.
  • Use sunscreen correctly.
  • Apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or more and during any sun exposure.
  • Apply liberally about 30 minutes before going outside and reapply every two hours. If you swim, get wet or sweat profusely, apply even more frequently.
  • Apply a sufficient amount of sunscreen. The average adult needs enough sunscreen to fill a shot glass to provide adequate coverage for each application.
  • Even with a sunscreen, sun exposure should be limited.
  • Don’t forget application to the nose, lips, ears, scalp, top of feet and back of hands.
  • Don’t assume you can skip the sunscreen if you or your child has darker skin.
  • Avoid tanning booths

I encourage the use of sun screen year-round, whether the forecast calls for sunshine or clouds.  Eighty percent of the sun’s rays can penetrate clouds. So, dig that sunscreen out of the bag with your beach towel and put it out where you’ll remember to use it regularly. Sunscreen isn’t just for trips to the pool or beach. The fact is that you’ll get most of your lifetime sun exposure while driving around in your car or running errands where you are outside for brief intervals.
