Can stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma be prevented?

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to prevent stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma. Because sun exposure is such a significant risk factor, the best thing you can do to prevent stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma is to limit your sun exposure. Avoid the sun when it's at its strongest (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). If you can't avoid the sun, wear a strong sunscreen year-round, and wear protective clothing that covers your arms and legs. In general, take care of your overall health by eating a healthy diet rich in antioxidants, and quit smoking or don't start smoking. Finally, make sure you check your skin frequently, and see a doctor if you notice any unusual symptoms that may be caused by stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma.
