#MedicalTipMonday: Reflected sunlight can burn you, too. Make sure to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to areas hit by bouncing rays. Don’t forget your hands, feet, ears and back of the neck. #SkinCancerAwarenessMonth  http://www.cccnevada.com/patient-resources/cancer-overview/types-of-cancer/skin-cancer

Instead of waiting patiently for her owner to get home from #CancerTreatment, Sissy, the Mini Schnauzer, trotted 20 blocks to pay her a visit at the hospital! http://ow.ly/MBRVP

#MedicalTipMonday: The symptoms of head and neck cancers may include a lump or a sore that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, difficulty in swallowing, and a change or hoarseness in the voice.
