The main types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), melanoma and Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC). The two main causes of skin cancer are the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays and the use of UV tanning beds. The good news is that if skin cancer is caught early, your dermatologist can treat it with little or no scarring and high odds of eliminating it entirely. Read more at bit.ly/SkinCancerSCF.

April is STD Awareness Month. The CDC estimates that youth ages 15-24 accounted for almost half of the 26 million new sexually transmitted infections in the US in 2018. Although some STDs are curable, contracting an STD can still have serious health consequences. Symptoms are not always present, but having an untreated STD can increase the risk of HIV, cancer, infertility, and pregnancy and delivery complications, as well as other chronic conditions. Remember: Abstinence is 100% prevention.
