The Municipality of Guarda is again allied with the Portuguese Association of Skin Cancer in yet another awareness and education campaign, in relation to sun care, within the scope of primary prevention of skin cancers, together with health and education agents. and in civil society. The incidence of skin cancers continues to increase and although most are curable, if diagnosed and treated early, about 90 percent are related to exaggerated exposure to the sun, especially in childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.
Exaggerated sun exposure not only for play (beach, walking or jogging) but also professional exposure (outdoor professions) can lead to acute injuries and premature aging of the skin.
