Blame it on CoCo Channel who in the 1920’s came back from a holiday in the south of France with a great tan. It was then that being bronzed became fashionable. Suntan lotion became popular in 1940’s and in 1950’s the bikini was the most talked about fashion accessory.  Four decades later we have 1.3 million Americans diagnosed with skin cancer every year and most of them are over 50 years old. Dr. Nanette Liegeois and Dr. Susan Liebovitz, discuss the different types of skin cancer, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and the risks.  Find out about sunscreen labeling changes and the A, B, C, D & E’s of a mole and skin cancer protection. The Aussie’s may have it right with their slip, slap, slop campaign. Slip on a shirt, slap on a hat and slop on some sunscreen to protect yourself from skin cancer.
