Suitable Lifestyle for People with Acral Lentiginous Melanoma

Acral lentiginous melanoma (ALM) is a rare type of skin cancer that usually develops under the surface layer of the skin. People with ALM should take steps to reduce their cancer risk and quality of life. The following are some suitable lifestyle choices for people with ALM:

1. Avoid direct sunlight: Ultraviolet rays in the sun are a major cause of ALM. Therefore, outdoor activities when the sun is strong should be avoided, especially at noon and afternoon.

2. Apply sunscreen: Using SPF30 or higher sunscreen can effectively protect your skin from UV rays. Sunscreen should always be applied before going out and checked and reapplied regularly.

3. Avoid sunburn: Sunburn is another cause of skin cancer. If you have ever been sunburned, you should avoid strenuous exercise or other strenuous activities while exposed to the sun.

4. Pay attention to personal hygiene: Keeping the skin clean and tidy is one of the important measures to prevent ALM. You should bathe every day and wash your skin with warm water and soap, especially in frequently touched areas.

5. Eat a healthy diet: A healthy diet can help the body stay healthy, thereby reducing the risk of cancer. You should eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole-grain breads, and protein-rich foods.

6. Limit alcohol consumption: Drinking alcohol may increase your risk of ALM. Alcohol consumption should be avoided or limited.

7. Regular physical examination: Regular physical examination is the key to detecting and treating ALM. You should have a skin exam at least once a year, as well as a comprehensive physical exam, including a skin exam, once a year.
