Skin Cancer: Skin cancer is absolutely considered a real cancer and should not be ignored! however, there are many types of skin cancer that have different prognoses. Some of the less invasive types, such as basal cell carcinoma, are occasionaly referred to as "good" cancers. Although no cancer is good cancer, these types tend to spread less frequently and have excellent prognoses if treated properly.

Loose Skin: Diet and exercise are excellent ways to tone and shape your body. However, if you have excess loose skin, this will often not respond to exercise alone. If the skin is damaged or has a lot of stretch marks it may be stretched beyond recovery and in this case would need to be removed surgically.

Sun Exposure: Sun exposure is the greatest risk for developing skin cancer. Most current data suggests this is related to intense exposure as a child. There is no exact number of times that will cause cancer but the damage is cumulative. You should always wear sun protection.
