Melanoma skin cancer cases on the rise in Wisconsin

WICCC_melanoma_info thumbnailIt was recently reported by the Wisconsin Cancer Council that skin cancer cases are on the rise. Tanning beds alone can increase your risk of melanoma by 75% (for those that use them before the age of 35). Before you step into a tanning bed please consider that nothing increases your risk of skin cancer development, including melanoma, more than indoor tanning.  It also significantly worsens you appearance by leading to wrinkles, freckles, and blood vessels on the surface of the skin.
