Question DetailsAsked on 3/1/2013

Is skin cancer dangerus and how to prevent it....

I had colon cancer in 2001 and it was removed.... At the time I was told there was a 50-50 chance of it returning..... Which it has not.... But now I'm told I have skin cancer on my left upper arm.... Maybe from driving truck for the last 47 years with my left arm on the door with the window rolled down when ever possible.... Could this cause it ?

I have no medical degree, but I would say that absolutely this could cause it. Exposure to the sun can cause skin cancer which is why we're told to cover up when we're in the sun or wear sun screen on the areas that we can't cover up. Even with sunscreen, we're supposed to limit our exposure to the sun. If you had daily exposure to the sun in the same spot as the newly found cancer, I think there is a great chance that you've found the answer.

I was shocked to find out that I had basil cell - never laid out in the sun - do not swim. - did have a tic bite on top of my head years ago and even after Drs looking at it. The basil cell did not show up until Dr checked it out when I went to have mole on arm removed. They checked my whole body but just that tiny spot on head. - so when I went back for follow up they completed the MOH surgery. so just make sure they check out whole scalp. Not one tiny little spot the size of a dime.
