Indoor and Outdoor Sun Tanning or Sun Burns Directly Linked to Deadly Melanoma Skin Cancer

BOCA RATON, Fla., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the US Surgeon General issued the most stern warning to date for indoor and outdoor sun tanning or sun burns stating they can lead directly to deadly melanoma skin cancer. In his statement Surgeon, General Boris Lushniak, says that "skin cancer is a major public health problem for all skin types and that too much exposure to indoor and outdoor ultraviolet light is a major cause." At the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine, in Boca Raton, Florida, Marta I. Rendon, MD, Board Certified Dermatologist, specializes in the prevention and treatment of skin cancer. "Many people experience their first sun burn in South Florida and then need to seek treatment," states Dr. Rendon who advises "prevention as the best remedy: keeping sun exposure to a minimum, wearing protective clothing including a hat and lots of sunscreen and to always avoid tanning beds." Nearly 6000 cases of melanoma skin cancer were directly attributed to tanning beds in 2013.

However as skin cancer cases in the US continue to increase Dr. Rendon and her staff are prepared to treat all types of skin cancer. She says that "if you are diagnosed with skin cancer we have the very latest treatments and state of the art equipment available today to treat your specific skin cancer." Dr. Rendon is also the only dermatologist in Boca Raton, Florida to implement the newest cutting-edge technology for non-melanoma skin cancer called the SRT-100 by Sensus, a painless, non-invasive device that successfully removes non-melanoma skin cancer.

With the latest Surgeon General warnings against exposure to ultra violet rays Dr. Rendon says "it is more important than ever to minimize sun exposure and have annual body scans to look for and detect any possible skin cancer early when it is most treatable."
