The sunshiny days draw folks outdoors and into the rays. Sunblock and UV-deflecting clothing will help keep skin damage to a minimum, but skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer—and the most preventable. Young folks are just as susceptible as older people, so it’s good to get those freckles, moles, and suspicious-looking spots checked annually by a dermatologist.
