Skin Cancer, Golfers’ Nightmare

Skin Cancer, Golfers’ Nightmare

The nightmare for all golfers is sunlight. The sunlight may cause skin cancer which is the most common cancer in the United States. The prevention guideline for golfers include: avoid the sun at its most intense (between 10 AM and 4 PM), Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants, covering as much skin as possible and apply sunscreen with an SPF of 30. Skin Cancer can be recognized by the ABCDE Rule as follow:
1) A – Asymmetry: If you draw a line through the mole, the two halves will not match.

2) B- Border: The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched.

3) C- Color: Having a variety of colors is another warning signal

4) D – Diameter: Usually larger in diameter than 1/4 inch

5) E – Elevation: Any change — in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait,

6) F – Fast: Growing, bleeding, itching or crusting
