A member asked:

Very good afternoon doctors. i have a dermatology question. i am a 63 year-old bald male. my dermatologist suggested (insisted) that i wear a hat when i am in the sun. what type of hat is best? is a baseball cap good enough or should it be a full hat?

Bucket hats with wide brim are offering extra protection for the back of the neck and upper face/ears, some of the areas prone to sun induced skin damage.
