Patient Actions
Since squamous cell carcinoma is linked to UV exposure, protection your skin from sun damage can help reduce your risk of skin cancer.

There are a variety of precautions you can take, including:

• Applying sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more. Sunscreen should be applied every two hours and after swimming or sweating.
• Wearing protective clothing and seeking shade when the sun’s rays are strongest (between 10am and 4pm)
• Taking vitamin D through fortified food and supplements. Don’t depend on sun exposure to get your daily dose of D.
• Performing self-checks of your skin. If you notice any new or changing growths, see a doctor as soon as possible.
• Avoiding indoor tanning beds.
