Men’s Hats in War Against Rising Skin Cancer Deaths

Men's Borsalino Handwoven Straw Panama Hat - The Panama Fino at HartfordYork.comDoes this sound like you?

Too often men leave it up to their partners or mothers to remind them to use sunscreen or cover up with a shirt and hat and even to visit the doctor about a worrying mole.

Well, I’ve certainly been guilty of rolling my eyes, but when I read the Medical News Today report (Men’s Skin Cancer Deaths Double In Last 30 Years) based on Cancer Research UK figures, I focused pretty fast.

It seems that “the rates of men dying from malignant melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – have doubled in the last 30 years.”

What’s so shocking about this statistic is that melanoma is a largely preventable disease: sunscreen, hats and shirts being pretty sensible choices, considering the alternative.

I think I might just start selling sunscreen on my site, along with men’s hats and summer shirts. Sort of a public health service.

Cover up, men. Here’s to your good health!

Thanks for reading,
