(PR NewsChannel) / July 2, 2012 / TAMPA, Fla. 

Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteAn article published online this morning by CNN Health claimed that according to a new report published in the journal Cancer Research, drinking more caffeinated coffee could lower one’s chances of developing basal cell carcinoma, the most common form of skin cancer.

Tampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman explains that although drinking coffee may lower your risk of skin cancer, coffee intake is not a replacement for sun protection.

“Whether it’s clothing, hats, sunglasses, shade, umbrellas or sunscreens, sun protection is necessary,” says the Tampa dermatologist. “Regular follow-ups are necessary to assess people at risk: those with a family and/or personal history of basal cell carcinoma.”

Forman has appeared on national TV, including the nationally syndicated show “The Doctors” to demonstrate his groundbreaking skin cancer treatments. The Tampa dermatologist has also appeared on many local news shows to discuss the importance of taking precautions for your skin.

As a result, he has become the go-to Tampa dermatologist when it comes to practicing safe sun, treating skin cancer with targeted, low-dose radiation and treating common skin conditions with phototherapy.
