In the past 31 years, more people have received skin cancer diagnoses than all other types of cancers combined. Even though anyone can develop skin cancer, people who spend more time in the sun or who naturally have fairer skin have a greater chance of developing skin cancer. The best way to protect against skin cancer is by wearing plenty of sunscreens, brimmed hats, and protective sunglasses.
In this video, PGA golfer Brian Davis shares his experience with skin cancer. As he explains, spending a lifetime of playing golf outdoors resulted in him being treated six times for various skin cancers. This experience inspired him and other PGA tour members to work with the Skin Cancer Foundation and raise awareness on skin cancer prevention.
