Does it happen that people get skin cancer after one blistering sunburn?

Sunburn and cancer. You'll find out when your about 70 or 80 years old.....
No, but not harmless. Melanoma risk is increased with just 1-2 sunburns. But that doesn't mean that you will automatically get melanoma. Other types of skin cancer go up in frequency with cumulative lifetime sun exposure. A young sunworshiper can get skin cancers normally seen in elderly individuals, for example. In short, avoiding sun exposure and using sunscreen help reduce overall risk of skin cancer.
