Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States... The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is called melanoma.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 17, 2014
Nucleus Medical Media offers no-charge informational medical animations in recognition of May 2014 as Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says, “Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV radiation can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is called melanoma.”
Fortunately, skin cancer can almost always be cured if it’s found and treated early. This is why Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month is so important.
With a mission to support and enhance health literacy, Nucleus offers free, informational videos about skin cancer tests and biopsies on the Nucleus Medical Media YouTube channel including Skin Biopsy and Excisional Biopsy.
Ron Collins, CEO and Co-founder of Nucleus Medical Media believes that the web is ideally suited to help spread health literacy information like skin cancer prevention and detection: “Health literacy is the first step in preventing diseases and conditions,” he says. “We ask all of our viewers on YouTube and Facebook to watch and share these animations to raise awareness about preventing and detecting skin cancer.”
If you are a nonprofit organization interested in using medical animations for community-based or faith-based health presentations on skin cancer prevention and detection, email Nucleus at info(at)nucleusinc(dot)com with “Skin Cancer Prevention Information” in the subject heading.
