Skin cancers -- including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma -- are on the rise, but using sunscreen liberally and limiting exposure to the sun can help prevent them, says Isaac Brownell of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Regular self-examination of your skin, including a yearly dermatology checkup, is the best way to identify skin lesions that may be cancerous. Diagnostic tools such as dermoscopy and confocal microscopy provide detailed images of skin lesions, which may help detect skin cancers and avoid unnecessary biopsies of non-cancerous lesions.
