How to Prevent Fair Skin Cancer

The relationship between sunlight and skin cancer are very complicated. Burn protection products have made extraordinary amounts of money by being cleverly marketed to prevent cancer, as opposed to preventing sunburn. On the one hand, there are scientists and medics, warning us about the skin damages. On the other hand - tanned stars, advertising tanning salons or sunscreen. But the problem sounds - to tan or not to tan.

We say - tan, but very carefully. The exception is for pale  blondies- it seems that you better to keep far from direct sunrays, because for people with fair skin cancer risk increases unimaginably high.  In fact, excessive sun exposure is the primary cause of skin cancer.  The more sun you're exposed to, the greater the risk you have of developing  skin cancer. But for fair skin cancer problems to appear is common sun exposure enough. And while beiing sunburnt and get fair skin cancer are preventable, thee lattere is not soeasilly curable as  the first. Apart from the fair skin cancer risk, over-exposure to sun makes skin dry, wrinkled and less elastic. Once this has happened, no lotion or potion can reverse the process.There are three main types of fair skin cancer, two of which- basal cell and cancerous cell carcinoma- are increasing prevalent but almost entirely treatable.  The third, malignant melanoma, is much rarer but far more lethal. Basal cell carcinoma also known as 'rodent ulcers', is the most common form. This fair skin cancer develops on parts of the body most exposed to the sun, especially the face and hands, but does not spread. Untreated, it burrows deeply into underlying tissues causing disfigurement and serious damage. Malignant melanoma is the most dangerous form of  fair skin cancer; it can spread very quickly and, unless caught early,  is very difficult to treat. This fair skin cancer develops from cells called melanocytes in the outer layer of the skin. this layer produces melanin, a pigment that helps protect the deeper layers of the skin from damage.Finally and most important, very fair-skinned people are at the highest risk for melanoma, and they tan poorly or not at all, and burn whether at the beach or at the tanning salon. For this high risk group, the burn versus tan debate is irrelevant. In fact, melanin defines the color of your skin- the whiter your skin is the less melanin you have.
Early detection and treatment offers your best chance of remission and survival. Regular skin self-exams could save an estimated 4,500 lives annually. Anytime you are concerned about a growth or spot on your skin, it is best to seek the advice of your physician.Don`t panic, but examine your body thoroughly cause on the initial stage fair skin cancer is perfectly treated.  These are some warning signs of fair skin cancer: a skin abnormality that increases in size and appears multicolored, pink, red, black, brown, tan, pearly, translucent, or tan.

Spots or growths that continually itches, hurts, becomes crusty, scabs, or bleeds are very dangerous. And if an  open sore does not heal after 4 weeks or one that heals and reopens, it is high time to consult the dermatologist.
