“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, ARC Dermatologist at ARC Round Rock.
“Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States,” 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.
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.
