@gingerw I was recently diagnosed with squamous cell, basal cell, and two precancers. You noted that you have had multiple skin cancer and precancer diagnoses. How have you changed your lifestyle as a result? I have always been a sunscreen fanatic, very frequently applying chemical sunscreen. I have now moved to mineral sunscreen since reading more about skin cancer after my excisions. This recent experience has me a bit fearful of the sun now, which I used to enjoy as an active person, not as a sun worshipper (I never lay out because I don’t get tan anyway). I bought lots of UPF 50+ shirts and am going to Disney with the grandkids in a few weeks and I am wondering if short sleeves with sunscreen would be an okay alternative. My skin cancers are on my hand neck and my precancers are in my nose and hand. I have two other suspicious areas on my forearms. Any advice is welcomed.
