The month of May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of the summer season. Warmer weather and sunshine allow us to fill our days with outdoor activities. The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention has designated the Friday before Memorial Day, May 28th, as “Don’t Fry Day” in effort to raise awareness of skin cancer prevention and to encourage everyone to protect their skin as they head outdoors to kick off the summer season.
Boston Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bartlett encourages the regular use of sun block. Men and women should monitor their own skin as well as the skin of their children. Regular use of sun screen early on in life can not only reduce the risk of skin cancer but other skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. If you happen to be one of the millions of Americans that are diagnosed with skin cancer, Dr. Bartlett will work with your doctor to create the best Boston skin cancer treatment plan.
Early detection is key to effective treatment of skin cancer. Dr. Bartlett treats many Boston skin cancer patients with sensitivity and compassion. Understanding the emotional stress skin cancer brings, Dr. Bartlett takes exceptional care to treat his New England skin cancer patients quickly, using effective Boston skin cancer treatments to produce optimal results.
