My mothers story...  My mother was diagnosed with a skin cancer on her forehead in 2007.  She had the cancer removed by a plastic surgeon.  It was an easy procedure so she didn't think much about it at the time.  Move forward to March 2010.  She went in for a routine check and the cancer had come back!  This time she had to undergo MOHS surgery to have the cancer removed and then she had to follow that up with two separate surgeries from a  plastic surgeon to put her forehead back together.  It was more than horrible!  She has permanent hair loss at her  hairline and  scar's that will never go away not to mention the several thousands of dollars spent on these procedures.  In March of 2015 she has had another cancer removed from her calf area.  We all like to be tan...this is the only way to go!
 
Please read  through the Cancer Facts below.  My mom wish's  she had known this before she spent so much time in the sun and tanning beds!  Pass this along!
 
Cancer Facts & News
 
  • Indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors. Additionally, the more time a person has spent tanning indoors, the higher the risk.
 
  •  Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, killing approximately 8,650 Americans in 2009.
 
  • About 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun
 
  • Up to 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by the sun.
 
  • Women aged 39 and under have a higher probability of developing melanoma than any other cancer except breast cancer.
 
  • Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25-29 years old and the second most common form of cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old
 
  • First exposure to tanning beds in youth increases melanoma risk by 75 percent
 
  • People who use tanning beds are 2.5 times more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma and 1.5 times more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma
 
  • Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is a proven human carcinogen, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
 
  • Frequent tanners using new high-pressure sunlamps may receive as much as 12 times the annual UVA dose compared to the dose they receive from sun exposure.
 
 
Reasons to Give Up UV Tanning
 
From a landmark study confirming that exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light (radiation from the sun or tanning machines) is the most common cause of melanoma to the proposed tax on the use of indoor tanning beds, there are a host of reasons to give up tanning. We hope you’ll keep them in mind in the new year.
 
  1. Studies Link UV Radiation to the Deadliest Form of Skin Cancer
    Scientists have analyzed the genome for melanoma, and, according to a definitive new study from The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, the vast majority of mutations found in this potentially deadly disease are caused by ultraviolet radiation.  Above all, these mutations are caused by damage to the skin cells’ DNA by UV radiation. According to the Institute, “The melanoma genome contains more than 33,000 mutations, many of which bear the imprint of the most common cause of melanoma — exposure to ultraviolet light.”
  2. Additionally, in July the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) added radiation from UV-emitting tanning machines to its list of the most dangerous forms of cancer-causing radiation — a list that includes the radioactive element plutonium as well as solar UV. Studies show that first exposure to tanning beds in youth increases melanoma risk by 75 percent
  3. Tanning Beds Increase the Risk of Non melanoma Skin Cancers,
    Tanning bed users have 2.5 times the risk of squamous cell carcinoma and 1.5 times the risk of basal cell carcinoma. These non melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) are the two most common skin cancers, and both can be highly disfiguring if not caught and treated in a timely manner. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC), the most common form of skin cancer, affects over a million Americans annually. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can metastasize if not caught early; approximately 2,500 people in the US die every year from SCC. People with a history of NMSC face twice the risk of developing other malignancies, like lung, colon, and breast cancer.
  4. UV Exposure Causes Skin Aging
    Up to 90 percent of the visible changes commonly attributed to aging are caused by UV exposure. The cellular damage to the skin’s DNA caused by UV radiation is cumulative and leads to fine wrinkles, deep grooves, blotchiness, sagging, and a leathery texture. People who accumulate a lot of UV exposure in their childhood and teen years may see signs of damage as early as in their twenties.
