WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - It’s important to lather on that sunscreen, even on a cloudy day.
Samaritan nurse practitioner Anne Hall says the sun’s rays are the most common cause of skin cancer, which is the most common type of cancer.
She says it’s important to watch for scaly patches, sores that don’t heal, and moles that change size, color or shape.
You can hear more of her advice in the video above. She was interviewed during Samaritan’s Morning Checkup segment on 7 News This Morning.
