But it is worth it in the end because you wouldn't want to put your body at risk.
But sunscreen takes so long to put on!
Mom, I bet you spend hours a day dealing with stubborn people like sis.
There are plenty of people who come into my office on the daily who I have to inspect. They clearly do not take any precautions to protect themselves from the sun. Let me finish telling you about the other type of skin cancer.
The one that is most fatal is called Melanoma. If it isn't removed soon enough, it can spread to many organs and cause you to die. Melanoma can be in places that are not always exposed to the sun. And people as young as 12 are able to get it. It can develop from moles that are too big, irregularly shaped or colored, raised centers, and a bumpy surface.
Can we please go to the pool now?
Maybe sunscreen is the way to go.
This is why I don't let you get spray tans because it increases your risk. And if your skin ever starts to blister from the sun let me know because we would have to check that out. I guess part of it is also genetics, too.
What do you mean by that?
If someone in our family had it, it would increases your risk. Having a lot of moles could be a risk factor because they could become irregular and they are harder to spot. You guys are lucky to have a dermatologist as your mom.
I guess so. At least we have someone making sure we are taking care of our skin.
Now that you are done teaching us about skin cancer...CANNONBALL!
