Yes please do this, my wife has had 3 spots removed this year also. I believe it's from those stupid tanning beds when she was younger.

I’ve had several surgeries and used a couple gallons of nitrogen over the years. Just had two biopsies come back positive yesterday. Fifty years in the sun will wreak havoc on your hide.

My hubby has had basal cell carcinoma x2. I keep a really close eye on his skin for changes... he worked in the Texas sun for 20 years and after the first cancer was cut out, found a new line of work. According to the doc though, the damage is already done...

Welcome to the club. I pretty much paint it on with a brush.

Shirts... Just wear long sleeves... The new Huk style fishing shirts are AWESOME. I swim with mine 99% of the time now

Suncreen on what isn't covered and a sun buff and gloves while fishing

Squamous cell where my neck meets my shoulder. Iíve tried to take care of this skin but the sun won over time.

Glad you got it Leemo.

Good luck man.

I am dealing with melanoma (stage 3C), only I didn't catch mine in time and it has spread to some lymph nodes. I have had 3 removed already and go back under the knife next Thursday. I also have to do immunotherapy twice a month for a year. I am not going to post any pics but my left leg is pretty jacked up with scars. One is about 14" long down my inner thigh and two other incisions up by my groin. I am having problems with a seroma that developed in the area of the lymph node removal.

I was one that used to think "it's just skin cancer" then I learned it's not all created equally. Melanoma can be serious stuff.

I wear long sleeve and still worry about this. My neck gets it bad even with a cowboy hat.

I was also wrong, thought I was a tough shrimper and crabber, also dealing with places of concern on my ears and nose.
Iíll find out Monday if they got it all, go back in two weeks for a total exam

The spot on the side of my nose was big enough they had to split between my eyes to get some extra skin to stitch it up.
