Got a patch of basal cell carcinoma taken off the side of my nose today, that is a form of skin cancer, though an extremely benign form, very very rarely causing any problems, it just kind of eats away at the parts near it. No biggie.
That said, it was fairly yucky getting it taken off, I will spare you the details, and it is no thing of beauty at the moment.
I suppose what I really want to say here is....wear the sunblock, wear a hat and keep your kids covered up. Sun exposure, especially in children, is really really detrimental.
Just sayin' .... cover up.
