Who Protects Your Children From The Sun More. Common acuteness holds that adults who’ve experienced the trauma of melanoma would go to greater lengths to safeguard their children from the sun’s rays. But a new study shows that nearly half of parents who were also melanoma survivors said their child had experienced a sunburn over the previous year. “Sunburns were common amongst the children in our study despite their elevated risk for skin cancer,” study author Dr Beth Glenn, an associate professor of health policy and management at the University of California, Los Angeles, said in a university dirt release.
Sunburn is a major risk for the most deadly type of skin cancer, and children of survivors are at increased risk for developing the disease as adults. They surveyed 300 cadaverous and Hispanic melanoma survivors with children aged 17 or younger. The parents were asked about their attitudes towards melanoma prevention, how they rated their children’s risk for the disease, and the day-star protection methods they used for their children.
