Thread: Check Yourself Skincancers

  1. #1

    Default Check Yourself Skincancers

    Hey guys, my father is going into surgery today, this is his 3rd surgery in as many months, today is a bad news one he is having t have his perotid gland removed along with all the lymth nodes in his neck, this is due to neglect of not having it seen to in its early stage and a failure by the surgen to remove all the skin cancer the first time rond. It is a squamus cell carcinoma that went beserk and spread at an insane rate.

    Check yourselves periodically and get onto any as soon as you can.

    I have a weekly check where I check everywhere I can see and my mother checks my back, bum back of legs etc.

    People underestimate how serious skin cancer is.

    People tend to forget *why* their skin tans in the sun.

    Not to say everyone with a tan has cancer.

    Thanks Beau, I hope your Dad is ok.

    Arriving from the UK 3 years ago I didn't give skin cancer too much thought and had never had a skin check in my life but I am very impressed with the campaign here and always have my yearly check now.

    I am saddened, though, at the amount of kids who still think it so important to get a tan. When will they wake up to the dangers? Hopefully not too late.

    They'll awaken from it when they're in their forties. Harsh but true.

    I know a girl who's mother was a BIG tanner. Baby oil, olive oil, sitting in the sun for hours. She now has huge chunks missing from her legs and is going through chemo. Her daughter has watched her suffer her entire life and has seen first hand the horrors of skin cancer.

    Guess who's the first one at the pool with a bottle of tanning lotion, no spf?

    I am petrified of getting any cancer. I saw what my father went through when I was 15. Sadly it was 6 weeks from diagnosis to his death.
