I've been going to the dermatologist for years now because a friend of mine, a dermatologist, scared the you-know-what out of me and I had a bump on my arm checked out. The one thing I know for sure is wear sunscreen. Over at the Daily Dose at Women's Health they have a great article called "Save Your Skin."
Scientists at Britain's Institute of Cancer Research have identified a gene that triggers cells to become cancerous after exposure to the sun.
The discovery could lead to better skin cancer treatments, with the ultimate goal of developing targeted drugs that can fix the damaged genes.
