Everyone knows that cancer can grow in any part of our body but did you realize that you can get skin cancer in your eyes? By it's name one can assume that it's only on the outside of the skin but the truth is scarier! 

Don't worry tough because your opthemolologist can check for changes during routine annual eye exams! 

Protect your eyes with UV resistant sunglasses....plus shades always look cool anyways!

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!
