Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles and blotches or spots on your skin.
The good news is that skin cancer is preventable, and it is almost always curable when it’s found and treated early.
Affinity is proud to take part in Skin Cancer Prevention Month. During May, join us in taking action to prevent skin cancer and reduce the risk of UV damage.

- Stay out of the sun as much as possible between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
