Last year I was diagnosed with skin cancer. It was one of the scariest moments of my life! I always thought my sun exposure wasn't too bad. I also thought Tanning indoors wasn't bad for me (a safe tan)... Can I say my bad!!
The cancer was found very VERY early on my back (only 1 single cell of melanoma in a test area) but my forehead not so much. On my forehead I had something called Basel Cell Carcinoma it is not deadly 99.99999% of the time but it does need to get removed. It was removed through a process known as the "Mohs procedure". The Procedure itself wasn't terrible but it did mean I had a 3" x 3" chunk of skin gone from my forehead (and currently a nice scare). Since we are in the middle of summer I thought I would share a little infographic about tanning indoors what many consider to be "Safe Tanning"
