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!

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…]
