Skin cancer prevention is important, even in the winter!

Even though it’s getting cooler outside, you still need to make sure to protect yourself from the sun to reduce your risk of skin cancer.

In Colorado, we are at higher risk of developing skin cancer thanks to our higher altitude and 300+ days of sunshine.

9Health Expert, Dr. Payal Kohli, talked with Dr. Mariah Brown – Director of Mohs Surgery and Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Dr. Brown shared the ABCDEs of identifying potential melanoma by routinely checking moles on your skin.
