How can I protect my skin from skin-cancer?

Skin Cancer and Senior Health Care

Anytime you find an unusual mole, or notice a change of an existing mole anywhere on your body (face, arms, legs, torso, back), you should notify your physician to have him or her check on this. These changes can indicate skin cancer, something that can be easily taken care of if removed in its early stages. A redness, scaliness, or non-healing spot on your face is another potential sign. It may prove to be 'nothing', but then again a cancer could be detected. Early diagnosis results in better prognosis.
