Doctors shed light on melanoma
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, and May 5th was Melanoma Monday, a day of awareness about the most dangerous form of skin cancer. As part of our public education campaign about this deadly form of skin cancer, we had a few dermatologists and skin care experts who were able to appear on television and radio to discuss the dangers associated with melanoma and how best to protect against this deadly form of skin cancer. In Green Bay, WI, Dr. Betsy Wernli appeared on Fox 11’s Living with Amy show, Dr. Lisa Campbell appeared on CBS 5 News, and Kurt Holst, PA-C appeared on NBC 26 News. In Oshkosh, Dr. Peter Katz was featured on WOSH AM-1490’s morning show on Wednesday, May 7th.
As all of these interviews outlined, it’s vitally important to wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to protect against the sun’s deadly rays, even on overcast days as UV rays can penetrate clouds. It’s also very important to see a dermatologist at least once a year for a whole-body scan to check for the warning signs of skin cancer. All Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin offices offer skin cancer screenings. To make an appointment at the office near you call (855) 337-6947.
