Around 1500 doctors particpam campaign in 145 points throughout Brazil.

National Day to Combat Skin Cancer, remembered, remembered on Saturday (24), approximately 1,500 dermatologists volunteers participating in a national task force to free preventive screenings for disease detection.

Altogether, 145 points across the country are offering simultaneous attendance for analysis, diagnosis and treatment, since 9am. The service continues until 15h, in public hospitals, health centers and tents in places of general circulation.

Sociedade Brasileira de Dermatologia Data indicate that 140 000 new cases of skin cancer are registered each year in Brazil. The number represents 25% of all malignancies identified in this country.

The chairman of the board, Marcus Maia, said that the main focus of the task force are called risk patients, who have very fair skin and features, which always turns red and never tans, light hair, light eyes; many pints in the body, and freckles on the face or shoulders.

People with moles that change color or sores that do not heal and have cases of skin cancer in the family should also do the screening. The estimate of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology is that about 10% of those seeking the task force, held since 1999, have some degree of the disease.

Around the world, despite the campaigns, skin cancer continues to increase. One explanation is that people are not getting the message properly. Another possibility, which is a global phenomenon, is longevity. We increasingly elderly and people know that aging leads to lower the body's defenses, said Maia.

The dermatologist noted that early diagnosis of the disease is important because, in most cases, a minor surgery is able to solve the problem. If the probe only happens later and the lesion size increases, the risk of mutilation of the affected area are larger.

It is important to remember that sunscreen is not just sunscreen. He alone does not solve. Sun protection is a set of attitudes: respect the time of greatest ensolação; looking to stay in the shade, and use hats and shirts, mostly synthetic material such as polyester and polyamide, the colors red and blue.
