As a cancer survivor and nurse, there are many things that I take seriously.  One of them is my annual check-ups.  This week, I had my annual Dermatology appointment where every inch of my skin was inspected to make sure I did not have any precancerous skin growths.  I am glad to say that I was all clear for another year.

Now does that mean I have no other responsibility until next year?  No!  One of the main responsibilities I have is to wear sunscreen when I am out in the sun.  The other is to examine your skin for anything that may change in appearance.

I have included some fact sheets from my Dermatologist office:

  1. Sunscreen Fact Sheet
  2. Sunscreen Recall – also see image above
  3. Common Benign (not cancerous) skin growths

I hope you find this information helpful.  Self-care is so important.
