Hello. I am a 39 yr old female, and was first diagnosed 9 yrs. ago with basal cell carcinoma & ackitenous keritosis. I had the MOES surgery done on my forehead, and they took skin out all the way into the muscle. I then had efudex treatment, and carac treatment for nine months. Since then I have had another MOES procedure for basal cell, about 20 or more basal cells removed, 10 or more squamous cells removed, and 2 melanoma removed. I also had squamous cell carcinoma on my lips where I did aldara. That was ..well pure ***l..because my lips got infected and bleed profusely. I live in California and have had too much fun in the sun, bogging boarding, in the Navy out to Sea in my younger years, laying out in the sun, tanning booth, etc..... I found this great lip block called "Lipcotz" it is 45 SPF. My Dr. turned me onto it. It is the strongest block for the lips on the market. Are either of you guys seeing a specialist for your condition? Like John Wayne Foundation for example? For any ladies out there that may be reading this I also know of some great sun block that is skin tone, and powder that I got from a dermatologist. It doesn't make you break out, and is very light. The tinted, chemical free sunscreen is "Elta MD Skincare" SPF 41. Then the powder is "Science sunforgettable, SPF 30. Works great. check it out online. Maybe they sell it. Or I can send the name of my sisters dermatologist and they can maybe ship it to you. Any advice from all of you?

I think you should do like I have and try to avoid the sun altogether. I live in Australia where the sun is 5 times worse than the U.S..If my lifestyle was as easy in Europe as here, I would move back straight away, but Europe have no medicare rebate like they have here in Australia.take care.

  • Skin cancer is contracted by approximately 60,000 people in the UK each year. It is normally caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light which makes the process of cell division in your skin malfunction. As a result your skin cells start to multiply in a rapid, out of control way leading to the formation of a cancerous tumour which usually appears as a blemish on your skin. naturasil.com
