Study shows Hispanics are susceptible to skin cancer

A majority of North Carolina Hispanics are susceptible to skin cancers because they don’t know how to perform skin self-exams, according to a report by the UNC School of Medicine.

More than three-quarters of Hispanic patients in North Carolina do not know about this potentially life-saving practice, researchers said.

According to the study, physicians need to educate their patients about ways to detect and prevent skin cancer.
