Too Much Sun can End Time spent in the Outdoors! By Gary Howey

  After a long cold winter, Sunny days are what we are waiting for, but getting too much sun isn’t such a great idea.

  In the summer, who doesn’t want to be tanned, there’s a thin line between a tan and skin cancer.

  Everyone needs to worry about getting too much sun, as it can be a life-changing event.

  It’s very simple, too much sun can and will lead to skin cancer! I know you’re saying; skin cancer is something others get but not me, it can happen to anyone at any age.

  When you first hear the word cancer, it will scare you to death, literally.  That’s the first thing came to mind when I heard it.  It is a day you won’t forget it was 1995; at my annual physical, I’d thought I was home free when a dermatologist stopped in to talk with my doctor.

  He had seen our television series and as all outdoorsmen do, we talked about hunting, fishing and the show.  He asked how things were going and I told him things were going well and during that conversation, he indicated if there was anything, he could do for me to let him know.

  I   brought up a spot on my lip that had been there for a while, not a big spot, not one that caused me any pain, just a spot that would break open from time to time.

  He looked at it, talked with my doctor and when said, “it looks like you have skin Cancer,” I about fell off the examination table

  What, I must have not heard him right, as my hearing isn’t the best, so I asked him to repeat it, the next words out of his mouth were “Cancer” and we’d better get a biopsy done.

  This couldn’t be, as, it’s been there for a long time, since the early 1970’s when I was in Viet Nam when I had shrapnel in my face and hands, pulled a small hot piece of shrapnel out of my lip. It had never hurt after that and as far as I knew, really hadn’t gotten any larger. [Read more…]

Too much Good thing Can Be Bad Gary Howey

A warm sunny day can bring a lot of warmth to people, especially those of us who long to be outdoors after a long cold winter.
I know you have heard the old saying “too much of anything is not good for you!”
That holds true when it comes to spending too much time in the sun.

Sure, a good tan looks nice, but there is a thin line between a tan and skin cancer.
If you do not take some precaution too much sun can a life-changing event. It is a no brainer, as too much sun can and will lead to skin cancer!
I know what you are saying; skin cancer is something others get but not me. Do not believe it, because it can happen to anyone at any age.

When a patient hears the word cancer, it will scare you to death, literally.
Death was the first thing came to mind when they said I had skin cancer. I remember it like it was yesterday. I had gone in for an annual physical, thinking I was home free when a dermatologist stopped in to talk with my doctor.

He recognized me since he had seen our television series. We talked about hunting, fishing and the show. He asked how things were going and I told him things were going very well and during that conversation, he indicated if there was anything, he could do for me to let him know.
I mentioned there was a spot on my lip that had been there for some time. It was not a big spot, it did not hurt, just a spot that would break open from time to time.
He looked at it, talked with my doctor and told me he thought it was “Cancer”.
Of course my first thoughts were, I must have not heard him as my hearing isn’t the best, so I asked him to repeat it, the next words out of his mouth were “Cancer” and we’d better get a biopsy on it.

Say What, I thought, this can’t be as it’s been there forever, since I was in Viet Nam, it never really hurt and really hadn’t gotten any larger, at least on the outside.
I thought he had to be mistaken, but when he ordered me back in a couple of days for a biopsy, I really started to worry. [Read more…]
