Spending Some Time in the Sun This Weekend?

“Protect yourself from the sun,” it’s the number one thing you can do to prevent skin cancer says Dr. Maria Josefina (Josephine) Quintanilla-Dieck, Dermatologist at ARC Round Rock.

What does that mean for ACL-goers? “That means seeking out shade, applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and wearing sun-protective clothing and hats,” says Dr. Quintanilla-Dieck. There are about 3.5 million cases of skin cancers diagnosed in this country each year, more than all other cancers combined. So prevention is key.

Dr. Quintanilla-Dieck discussed the causes of skin cancer, and gives you some easy-to-follow steps to prevent it, on a recent ARC Healthcare Minute podcast. Click the link above to hear the details.

If you have a family history of skin cancer or have worrisome spots, make sure to consult with a dermatologist for a skin cancer screening. Dr. Quintanilla-Dieck is currently accepting new patients at ARC Round Rock. Call 512-244-9024 or make an appointment online.
