In brief: Enjoy the warmth

As a mohs surgeon, i see a lot of patients with skin cancer.
I tell them to enjoy the warmth of the sun- but not the rays. You can still go outside and enjoy your activities but be sure to cover up with clothing and sunscreen. Having one skin cancer means you have had enough sun in your lifetime to cause one to form. Reducing your sun exposure will help prevent future skin cancer. So cover up.
