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…]
