Share this video with the man in your life.

But, if your Man is like most, they’ll need your help in protecting themselves.

Prevention: Don’t get tanned or burned…even once!

  • Sunscreen – Wear it and apply every two hours
  • Clothes – UV resistant clothing optimal when exposed for long time periods.
  • Sunglasses – Helps prevent eye cancer
  • Hats – No one puts sunscreen on their head. Many men get skin cancer on ears, scalp and nose. Help them out, buy them a cool hat!

Detection: 

  • Annual Dermatologist Appointment – At least once a year.
  • Mole Mapping – Have Dr. count and measure moles, year over year they’ll measure and monitor them for change. If something is amiss they’ll get it!
