Skin cancer is commonly linked to excessive ultraviolet (UV) light exposure - from the sun or tanning beds - and inadequate UV protection, such as protective clothing and/or sunscreen.

How about you? Has your skin cancer been linked to previous or excessive UV exposure?

Is your skin cancer linked to UV exposure?

Hi Lee - thank you for welcoming to Carenity. 

I did develop skin cancer on my nose due to UV exposure. I am very fair skinned and spent too much time in the sun and tanning beds. Doing what I can now to make sure I am healthy and safe from the sun.
