      Skin cancer is a major concern especially in the summer time, but doctors say there's a simple way to combat the problem all you need is sunscreen.

      They say to avoid the disease you need to put about two tablespoons of the product on your body every couple of hours.

      Dermatologist Dr. Stuart Goldsmith says, "if you're not sure about the amount of sunscreen to use, you can never go wrong with putting on more clothes."

      He adds that of you have any other concerns, consult with your doctor.
