Dr. Buckthal gives radio interview on skin cancer

Dr. Jill Buckthal, dermatologist and dermatopathologist for Avail Dermatology, was a guest on FM 92.5 “The Bear,” the Southside’s premiere Rock station. Dr. Buckthal addressed the dramatic increase in skin cancers seen in the U.S., and detailed the factors in this growing epidemic. She discussed the types of skin cancer, potential complications from these cancers, and the treatments currently in use. Dr. Buckthal commented that this type of outreach using media channels that are frequented by younger audiences is crucial, as it is behavior in the younger years that ultimately leads to the development of skin cancer. Youth-oriented media like FM 92.5 are a perfect vehicle for reaching this crucial population before they become skin cancer victims.
