The title of this blog may be a bit confusing for you. It probably seems like the words “for” and “against” completely contradict themselves, and they do! However, as you’ll read, both specific considerations for your skin are important for you as you think about preventing and detecting skin cancer.

Screening Against Skin Cancer

The warmer spring temperatures invite us outdoors. Perhaps you’re on the sidelines of your child’s lacrosse, soccer, baseball or tennis match. Your role in supporting and cheering for your little sporty is so important. They need your positive encouragement during these formative years. However, we’d like to encourage you and your little athlete to ensure that you’re covered with sunscreen to protect yourselves from the sun’s harmful rays. Read here about which sunscreen is best for you as you find yourself outdoors so much more this spring.
