During Skin Cancer Awareness Month in May, Viegas encourages everyone who plans to go outdoors to use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, wear a hat and UV-blocking sunglasses, and limit time in the sun.
One in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetimes. Viegas emphasized the importance of seeing a physician annually for an exam. Monthly self-exams are recommended.
