Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell, on behalf
of Expert Village, I’m going to talk to you about signs of skin cancer. Now, in this clip,
I’m going to talk about the risk factors. Now, what are the risk factors of skin cancer.
The number one risk of skin cancer is ultra-violet radiation. Like, sun bathing or tanning. Sores
and burns or exposure to carcinogens like arsenic and radiation therapy, or family history,
or a history of skin cancer that you have yourself. Certain medications or drugs can
put you at a higher risk of getting skin cancer. Chronic skin inflammation or skin ulcers can
also can be a risk factor for you to develop skin cancer later on in your life.
