I resent y'all making me feel bad for loving the feel of the sun beating on my bare skin.   When did this anti-sun propaganda begin anyway?  

Thinking back to all the old sun leathered farmers and outdoorsmen I grew up around, I can't recall a single one that died from, had to get treated for, or even complained about the possibility of "skin cancer".  

I'm not too sure that you fellas haven't allowed your brains to be reprogrammed about some of these things.  I was born into a world that had a sun, thankfully,....and be darn if I'm gonna hide from it and take pride in any extreme whiteness.    I'd get alot more sun on my privates if it wouldn't get me arrested. 😎

I'm with you, Wrench. Skin cancer takes a long time to show up.  You have it because your mom let you run around all day every day in the summerwhen you were a kid  w/o any protection.

While skin cancer is bad I wear all my stuff that I do because I hate getting sunburned.  Being extremely fair skinned it doesn't take much for me to look like a lobster and the pain that goes along with having a sunburn isn't exactly fun.

I've also been blessed with many many moles and I've had to have 4 of them taken off, with one being borderline malignant and had to have a good chunk of skin from around it taking out of my lower back.  I'd rather not have to give any more money to my dermatologist.

She didn't really "let me".  She was passed out drunk and didn't care. 

So maybe sober parents are the leading cause of skin cancer.  🤣

Do you guys go to a dermatologist for regular check ups or just if you notice a weird looking spot on your skin? I've got a lot of freckles and always worry about skin cancer since I pretty well stayed sun burned all summer long when I was younger.

I go all the time.  I'm white, like real white.  Like @moguy1973 I just burn on top of burn and frankly.....I'm delicate and it hurts:blush:

Imagine that. You didn't adjust well to your environment. 😄

I have had some spots (ear and forehead) that took a long time to heal and kinda concerned me. I know darn well that if I had gone to a doctor about them they would have put me through a bunch of crap and would have had me driving back and forth to Columbia 14 times, and they woulda milked it for all they could. 

I just kept the areas clean and kept smearing a little triple-antibiotic on them, and finally after a few months they healed up perfectly.  I have a tiny little spot on my upper lip right now that refuses to heal completely where I got smacked with a bungee strap way back in September.   If I let a doctor look at it he'd send me to some specialist and they'd try to carve half my face off.  No thanks.

I get checked every now and then Seth.  You saw that spot on my nose last month.  I just keep an eye on it for now.  New spots that show up you need to keep an eye on.  If it looks weird get it checked out.  

I look at it this way.  I spent the majority of my life outside not ever wearing sun screen at all.  Now that I'm older I figure I better start taking care of myself better as my pops has had 3 nose surgeries, and his hands are a mess of scars from having spots frozen or cut off.

Being bald and having a burnt dome is no fun either lol.
