Tanning and Skin Cancer

Were you told by a dermatologist that tanning led to your skin cancer diagnosis?

  1. I was told that my sun exposure, including purposeful tanning were contributing factors to my diagnosis. Scott skincancer.net team member

    1. ...same for me. It was one of the first questions I was asked after I was diagnosed with melanoma in 2007. I have lost count of the number of times my dermatologist and I have discussed the role tanning played in my many skin cancers over the years. April, SkinCancer.net, Moderator

    2. Are there tanning salons still open in your area? Scott skincancer.net team member
