Can squamous cell carcinoma be prevented?

You cannot prevent skin cancer, but you can reduce your risk by limiting exposure to UV radiation during peak UV times, not tanning in the sun or using sun beds, seeking out shade and wearing protective clothing such as hats and long-sleeved shirts with collars to protect the arms and neck.
