Can basal cell carcinoma be prevented?

You cannot prevent skin cancer, but you can reduce your risk by minimizing your exposure to UV radiation during peak UV times. You can also use shade, wear sunscreen and protective clothing such as hats and long-sleeved collared shirts to protect the arms and neck. Avoiding tanning, whether in the sun or a sun bed, is a simple and easy way to reduce your risk.
