Can stage 0 basal cell carcinoma be prevented?

Fortunately, there are several ways you may be able to prevent stage 0 basal cell carcinoma. Because stage 0 basal cell carcinoma is related to sun exposure, it's important to protect your skin from the sun. Avoid excessive sun exposure, especially during its strongest hours (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). If you are outside, wear plenty of sunscreen all year round, and wear protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible. Doctors suggest that a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and vitamin D may also help prevent stage 0 basal cell carcinoma. Also, make sure to check your skin regularly for any abnormal growths, especially if you're at a higher risk for stage 0 basal cell carcinoma or if you've had it before.
