How much does a ovarian cystadenoma scare me?

How much does a ovarian cystadenoma scare me?

I live in Phoenix. Someone (not a doctor) told me that everyone here will get skin cancer eventually. Is that really true? I don't buy it.

I live in Phoenix. Someone (not a doctor) told me that everyone here will get skin cancer eventually. Is that really true? I don't buy it.

Not true: Not everyone will get skin cancer. Even some people who don't follow any of the rules don't get cancer. Just like some smokers never get cancer. However, to minimize your risk use sunscreen, wear a hat, avoid the sun during the peak hours of 10 am to 2 pm. Avoid tanning beds. Don't get sunburned to get the basis of a "good tan." Certainly some people are at greater risk than others. ...Read more
