If I get skin cancer can I go outdoors again?

Solbari blog: If I get skin cancer can I go outdoors again?

Skin cancer is highly treatable and mortality rates are low if caught early. Difficulties arise in where skin cancers or melanomas go undetected for a period of time and become a more advanced condition. In more advanced skin cancer and melanoma cases, the tumour will have extended through the lymph node and impacted other vital organs.

Having skin cancer doesn’t mean you cannot go outside again, it just means that need to be careful in the sun and be aware that you are at risk of a new or a recurrence of skin cancer should you expose your skin to direct sunlight without adequate protection.

It is possible to go outdoors and be sun safe at the same time.

Dermatologists recommend UPF 50+ sun protective clothing, broad brim sun hats and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating above 30. Sunscreen is an effective means of sun protection if applied and reapplied correctly but the best course of action is to cover up with protective clothing.
