(SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE) – As the weather starts to gets nicer and people spend more
time outdoors, CNOS Dermatology reminds you to stay safe with your skin exposure.
“When outdoor activities begin, it’s a good idea to slip on clothes to cover from the sun,
slop on sun screen, slap on a hat for protection, and seek shade and slide on
sunglasses,” said Dr. Kuwahara, Dermatologist at CNOS.

Kuwahara. “We will remove any suspicious-looking tissue and send it to a lab for analysis
to determine if you have skin cancer.”
