(( The American Cancer Society says the number of cases of melanoma is increasing by four percent every year.
But about 80 percent of skin cancers could be prevented if people protected themselves from the sun's rays.
Those who are fair skinned and burn easily are most at risk.
And Dr. Karanita Ojomo at the Lewis Gale Regional Cancer Center says it can take 10 to 20 years for the cancer to develop after the skin has been damaged.

The program allows patients to go on-line to view their medical records.

Doctor Brent Lambert say once the pilot program is finished Carilion will most likely make the program available to all its patients.
And a relatively new pap smear may reduce the number of repeat pap smears a woman may need to undergo.
It's called the ThinPrep test and unlike the conventional method doctors don't smear the specimen on a slide - they place it into a vial of preservatives that is processed in the lab.
The machine filters out the unnecessary material like blood and mucus, making a cleaner sample to read.
