Getting a sunburn is not only painful, it damages key parts of our skin which can lead to skin cancer. Here's more in today's Health Minute. What makes sunshine cause cancer? Too much of the sun's UV rays can damage our skin's DNA, causing some parts to literally get glued together and malfunction. If this happens over and over again, this can lead to cancer. And, experts say, getting even one blistering sunburn significantly increases the risk for melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. So, if you're out by the pool, or at the beach, do what the doctor says: avoid mid-day sun, lather up with sunscreen, wear a hat and a swim shirt or other protective clothing. And, get to your dermatologist each year for a skin check. He or she will look for changes in your moles, but also new or changing spots on your skin which could be dark or even red. "We know that 40 percent of melanomas don't start in moles, they just come up out of the blue," says Dr. Rutledge Forney, a dermatologist. Often triggered by previous sunburns. If you grew up spending time in the sun, don't panic, but do keep any eye out for changes in your skin. And, experts say, you shouldn't be fooled that sunbeds are a safer alternative. "The accessibility of tanning beds has caused an increase in the rate of young people with melanomas," says Dr. Forney. "And, it's a very serious problem."
