Strategies to reduce the risk of skin cancer include limiting your time outdoors when the sun is at its most harmful (between 10am and 4pm), covering up as much as possible with sunglasses, hats and long sleeves, and using a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher on exposed areas.

Identifying an association between FILIP1L and mucinous colorectal adenocarcinoma further enhances our understanding of the role this novel tumor suppressor plays in the development of these cancers," notes Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey Director Steven K.

MedPage Today - The findings remain relevant to current clinical practice for managing DCIS, according to Bruce G. Haffty, MD, of Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey in New Brunswick.

"It is important to note that the average age of patients in this study is 58 years, typical for the average age of women diagnosed with any DCIS. Since these women have a long life expectancy, it is important when weighing the risks and benefits of undergoing radiation that long-term data is available to aid patients in their decision-making.
