McAllen, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — May 6th is National Melanoma Monday, the special day is meant to bring awareness to the dangers of sun exposure.
Living in the Rio Grande Valley we are all aware that the UV rays are very strong, so dermatologists remind everyone about the dangers of skin cancer.
Here locally one dermatology center is sending a message about the importance of detecting skin cancer and utilizing preventative measures.
Dermatologists also stress the potential dangers which tanning beds can cause when it comes to skin cancer.
