shouldve used sunscreen.

so i have skin cancer on my back. i got some biopsies done last week on two spots...and one came back as basal cell carcinoma.
i will be having a little minor surgery to get it removed on the 30th.
this is likely from silly times spent in the tanning bed and out on the beach without sunscreen 10 years ago when i thought i was invincible!!!
anyway, just a great reminder to use sunscreen and go get checked if you have a suspicious mole or "spot". the area on my back didnt really look like a mole at all, just a red raised area that popped up 6-8 months ago and was itchy.

i hear ya! i am kicking myself now as i see lines and wrinkles on my face and hands. that dark skin back then now looks like AGE! look for UVA/UVB block. The "A" rays age your skin and the "B" rays burn it. (Compliments of CLINIQUE)
