Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
How do I protect myself against the sun if I already had skin cancer?
Rachel Woods, BSN, RN, Nurse in Moh's micrographic surgery at Penn Medicine, responds:
Sun safety is always a concern. Think of sunscreen as your last line of defense. Cover up with clothing as much as possible and seek shade in prime hours (10am - 2pm). UPF clothing is a fantastic option. Hats with wide brims, sunglasses, and long sleeves/pants are best for coverage.
