                                          disproportionately affect citizens of this beautiful city, but the
                                          simple truth is that there are some very real risk factors for
                                          individuals around here.

                                          In 2006, 53,919 people across the US were diagnosed with
                                          melanoma, the most aggressive form of this cancer. More
                                          than eight thousand individuals died from that condition
                                          within the same year. How can you reduce your risk of
                                          contracting this often fatal disease? Here are a few tips that
  might help.


  - Sunblock should be a key component of your daily routine. Given how much time spent
  outside by most people in Colorado Springs, skin cancer prevention should always start with
  sunblock. Choose an SPF of 30 or higher for a 95% blocking ratio. Even if you invest in a
  higher SPF, you're still not getting that much more protection for your money, so it's important
  to avoid the hype and simply remain as safe as you possibly can.

  - Understand what factors put you at greater risk. Often diseases that jeopardize your immune
  system can put you at a greater risk of cancers like this, as can treatments for various other
  diseases. Talk with your doctor if you're concerned about the ability of your immune system to
  fight off the causes of this cancer. Likewise, certain medications can increase your risk of skin
  cancer. Organ transplant patient tend to be at greater risk, as do those individuals who take
  certain antibiotics and oral contraceptives. While all of this information is clearly printed on the
  labels of any prescription medication you might consume, it's best to check with a doctor or
  pharmacist if you have any questions.

  - While skin tone isn't a primary risk factor, it does increase your risk. If you're very fair
  skinned, it's essential that you realize the importance of ongoing protection as often as
  possible. While people with darker skin tones tend not to burn as much when they go out in
  the sun, damage from UV light can affect almost anyone, and awareness of that factor is
  essential every time you leave the house.


  - Know your family history. As with almost any type of cancer, understanding your family
  background is absolutely essential to begin aware of your risk. In Colorado Springs, skin
  cancer patients may or may not have a familial history of the condition, but it's best to
  consider extensive pre-screening if you do.

  Anyone's skin can be affected by this condition, and taking a closer look at how to prevent
  any problems is key to catching and treating this disease before it becomes an issue in your
  life.
