High: You'll do well to use a good sunscreen, and especially to continue to keep an eye on your skin.

Sun Damage: Lentigines are due to localised proliferation of melanocytes. The most common type, solar lentigines, arise in middle age and also result from sun damage (age spots). They are most often found on the face and hands, and are larger and more defined than freckles.

SPF 35, uv A&B: Use sun block spf 35 and above with uv a& b protection. Bang for your buck after 35 is very little. Re apply 90 min to 2 hours even if it says all day block.

With head skin cancer at age 89, should it be ignored? Will somebody die before the skin cancer grows?
Type of cancer?: 3 common types: basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma. No one would recommend ignoring melanoma. Squamous cell can spread to lymph nodes and beyond so should not be ignored unless the 89 year old is very ill and unable to be treated. Ignoring a basal cell in an 89 year old is not out of the question but if it becomes larger, painful and bleeding in 2 years, would we wish we had removed it at 89? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just had cancer head melanoma surgry, anesthesia made urination very difficult, few drops a time, am now on flomox, and a catheta, how do I know if?
Hypertrophic prostat: melanoma of the head, if after resection requires grafting because of size, then some form of anesthesia needed. If general anesthesia given and known prostate enlargement at age 81 then urinary dribbling may occur. Use of Flomax (tamsulosin) can help and eventually near normal urine flow will occur without use of catheter. This is not a sign of possible spread of the melanoma. ...Read more
Local growth mostly: Mostly skin cancers (like all cancers) grow locally, spreading both side to side as well as down. For melanomas in particular, deep growth is more dangerous. Cancers also can jump (or metastasize) via lymphatic vessels or blood vessels. This can lead to spread to local lymph nodes or distant sites like the lungs, liver, brain, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
