The skin, also known as the epidermis, is the body’s largest organ. It protects against heat, sunlight, injury, and infection. It helps control body temperature and stores water, fat, and vitamin D.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. It usually forms in skin that has been exposed to sunlight, but it can occur anywhere on the body.
Dr. Lori Ramirez, a dermatologist from Ogden Clinic, will talk about the types of skin cancer and address ways to avoid and prevent it. She will discuss some of the symptoms and what to look for:
– A new mole or dark spot
– Lump, ulcer, or scaly patch on the skin
– Redness or swelling beyond the border of the mole
– A sore that does not heal
– Change in sensation such as itchiness, tenderness, or pain
– Change on the surface such as scaly texture, oozing, bleeding
Join us to learn how to prevent skin cancer and keep your skin healthy and safe. We encourage participants to ask questions.
Refreshments and fun door prizes will be offered.
