With me this morning is Alexandra Castro, Director of Fundacancer.

Skin cancer is only surpassed by prostate, Mamery and cervical cancer. In fact, according to Fundacáncer’s report , one of every three positive cases of this disease is skin.

The report adds that this condition is caused mainly by exposure to ultraviolet radiation that comes from the sun and is also found in tanning beds and cabins. If it is detected early, it can be cured.

In addition, there are preventive measures such as sunglasses with UV filter, wide-brimmed hats and long-sleeved shirts, in case you have to be exposed to the sun’s rays, as well as try not to expose yourself during peak hours 9:30 am and 4:00 pm.
