treatment is sought. accord-
ing to Dr. Williams. The
three important symptoms
of skin cancer are: any new
growth (any lump or bump
on or beneath the surface
of the skin). a sore that
does not heal, a change in a
mole. Dr. Williams also rec-
ommends running a hand
over the face, arms and
hands. Any tiny scaly dry
patch or lump found should
be investigated.
Dr. Williams warns
against sun tanning, which
he calls "a person's worst
enemy," since it encour-
ages premature aging of
the skin, takes out the
skin's elasticity, thickens
the skin and causes sun
sores, which are all pre-
cursors to skin cancer.
Dr. Williams encourages
wearing light-colored cloth-
ing to reflect the sun's
rays, a wide brimmed hat
and the application of sun
screens to the skin.
