Summer is usually a time filled with fun, but too much sun exposure can set you up for skin cancer.

One person who can attest to the dangers of skin cancer is Fox Sports broadcaster Joe Buck.

Joe says he got involved with a skin cancer awareness campaign after his mother was diagnosed with melanoma a few years ago. Joe adds that his mother was able to detect the cancer early and get it taken care of so it is now behind her.

Dr. Abel Torres, who is the president of the American Academy of Dermatology, says people should seek shade, use protective clothing, use at least SPF 30 that is broad spectrum and water-resistant.

Dr. Torres adds that men who are older than 50-years are at a higher risk of skin cancer.
