Basal Cell Carcinoma
Dr. SteppieMichael W. Steppie, MD, President/Medical Director 
Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer diagnosed and accounts for over 80% of skin cancers in the US.
BCC is easy to detect as it often appears on areas that have had the most sun exposure.  This includes face, ears, scalp, back of the neck and back of the arms and hands.
The most common type of basal cell carcinoma appears as a shiny, waxy or translucent bump or nodule.  The center may ulcerate, creating a sore that never heals.
Treatment is simple and successful.  There are multiple treatment options available depending on its size, shape, location and your medical history.  They include medications, simple procedures like Cryotherapy and laser therapy, excision and MOHS Micrographic Surgery.

How much Sunscreen should I use?

Licensed Paramedical Esthetician
A family of 4 should use an entire 6 oz bottle of sunscreen for a day at the beach if everyone applies twice. That's right! About a shot glass full for full body coverage and reapply every two hours or after swimming.

Not going to the beach? A teaspoon full for face and neck and hands.
I encourage you to educate yourself on proper skin care and skin cancer treatments.  Please let me know if there are topics you are interested in learning more about. 
Know your skin. Share your knowledge.
