A 19-year-old male asked:
What are the chances of a 19-20 year old developing skin cancer? i am on vitamin d3 1000 supplements if it helps.

Lifestyle and: genetics are part of assessing cancer risk. 1000 of D3 is a modest dose. Please see your doc, express your concerns about skin cancer, and ask if he/she will test your D3 level so you won't be guessing as to dose. Peace and good health.
