Both indoor and outdoor tanning is bad2007-05-01 12:52:33 by britknee
They are both bad and will cause cancer. I had Melanoma from from tanning beds and laying out in the sun. Maybe one day I can scan my pics of my scars from having my cancer dug out. I could not walk for 8 weeks and the scar of having my lymph nodes out with a nasty drain. I have scars every where now. I get at least 2 moles off every 3 months since I was dx with Melanoma at the age of 19. I am 21 now. I get scans every 3 months to make sure the cancer is not spreading to any of my organs. It is very scary when scan results come in. I just hope for the best. People dont take Melanoma seriously they think "oh it just skin cancer"
