Question About Skin Cancer?

Postby Dontae » Mon Oct 09, 2017 7:40 pm

The large majority of people diagnosed with skin cancer are over the age of 50 with the average age being 63.
Skin cancer is associated with excessive UV exposure over a prolonged period time.
As the population ages then you get increasing incidence of skin cancer and we will see a surge in these rates with the baby boomers before it tapers off again.
Skin cancer rates will see another surge in 20 years time when their children start to age and their excessive UV exposure over a prolonged period of time catches up.

Question About Skin Cancer?

Women are now more aware of the affects of the sun and take better care of themselves? The products they use are better geared to combating the sun I would guess at too.
