In brief: Unlikely

However, your skin is affected natural light in a similar fashion and having a regular skin exam with your doc is worthwhile.
Any new moles or suspicious ones should be brought to their attention.If you have any form of skin cancer in your family, let the doc know. Even moles located in your scalp should be assessed.
