Thanks Mr. Sun!! You're actually really nice, which is ironic!! I love you!!
How can we tell if she has one?
White people are often at a higher risk along with anyone with blonde or red hair, blue, green or hazel eyes, or a family with history of skin cancer.
Okay so, how did I get Basal Cell Carcinoma? I'm not white
White people just have a higher risk. Everyone should still avoid sun exposure from 10 AM to 4 PM, avoid tanning beds, wear sunscreen like I said and wear protective clothing.
And also, about your Basal Cell Carcinoma, follow my advice and visit a dermatologist if it grows!
