Hopefully you caught the story the other night on KTVZ about the high skin cancer rates in the High Desert area. Here's the upshot: According to the American Cancer Society, Oregon has the dubious distinction of ranking fifth in the country for melanoma, and our High Desert region faces some of the highest rates of skin cancer in the state. Not surprising considering the number of sunny days we enjoy, and how much time a lot of us spend outdoors taking full advantage all there is to do here. Most Central Oregonians are pretty savvy about getting moles checked out and taking precautions, such as using sunscreen. Skin cancer can often be successfully treated if discovered early. If you have any concerns, make and appointment and see us.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, these images speak volumes. According to the CDC, there are now more new cases of skin cancer each year than breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancers combined. If you have any concerns whatsoever about skin moles, make appointment with your dermatologist and get them checked out.

It's pretty unlikely that the "facekini" will catch on here in the States, but elsewhere they are gaining in popularity to protect the face from sun damage and aging.  Read the full story and see a few more photos. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/08/29/the-facekini-from-the-beaches-of-china-to-pages-of-a-fashion-magazine/

How to avoid bug bites and stings this summer? The American Academy of Dermatology as some great tips for you and your family.

Cover up: If you're outdoors in places where there are a lot of insects and bugs (near lakes or ponds around the Bend area, for example), wear long sleeves, long pants, and long socks.

Check your skin: When you come in from being outdoors, check your skin for ticks, and be thorough.

Avoid buggy areas: If you hike or camp in the forests around Central Oregon, stay on the path or in clearings, and try not to brush up against the trees and other plants.

Don't panic: If you are surrounded by a swarm of insects or bees, keep calm. Hold your arms very still at your sides and walk away slowly. Do not wave your arms or try to shoo the insects away. This will scare them and provoke an attack.

Leave their home alone: Never poke a stick or throw anything at a wasp's or bee's nest. If you find a nest on the ground, don't touch it. If you do, the insects will attack. 

Don't invite them for dinner:  If you're having a barbecue or picnic, cover up the food. Insects love the smell of food, especially when that food is sweet.

Don't smell too good: Insects don't just like the smell of food, they also come running or flying when they smell perfumes, lotions, and creams. Be sure to use sunscreen that doesn't attract insects.

Have a great bite-and-sting-free rest of the summer!

Hope you've all been having a wonderful 4th of July holiday weekend. While you're out enjoying all that Central Oregon has to offer this summer, don't forget to apply sunscreen to those often forgotten places - eyelid, lips, ears, and feet.
