Skin cancer age 13?
Is it remotely possible to get skin cancer at age 13 when your in the sun maybe 15 min every few days?
                      








JMCG
i dont think so, people only get skin cancer when they are exposed to the sun more than 2 hours per day straight, the most ull get is a sun burn but cancer is unlikely, i know people who are in the sun all day practicing basketball and they have no skin cancer, btw, the skin would probably adapt to the temperature and the rays it is getting exposed so dont worry....

Yes. The sun places you at risk to develop skin cancer, but it isn't the only cause. You can also develop skin cancer on the bottoms of your feet where the sun never reaches. So, yes, although rare, you can get skin cancer at 13 even if never exposed to the sun.

If you have a 'genetic disposition' for skin cancer, you can get it at ANY age. My oldest son had 'precancerous moles' taken when he was all of 8 ... please CHECK WITH YOUR PARENTS if you even THINK you have skin cancer ... a 'mole' that is 'irregular' in shape, very very dark, that 'hurts' ...

Yes, it is. If you have a lesion, or spot, have a doctor check it out immediately. Don't be afraid of having anyone think of you as a hypochondriac. It's better to be a live hypochondriac than a dead martyr. Good luck!


Louise
Not impossible. Very, very unlikely. Check your moles!

Depending where you live, yes you might.
Always wear suncream approved by the skin cancer society.

And i also heard, caucasians/light color skins have higher risk of skin cancer compared to those with darker skin color.

Also avoid excessive sun exposure from 10a.m. till around 4-5p.m in summer time.

That's not a lot of time at any one time to be in the sun. Don't worry about it.


Here are a couple links about skin cancer...

i don't know/ Anything could be possible these days now that the sun has begun to produce more het now than ever, and the chances of being in the sun are risky.


julvrug
Yes it is possible, depending on your skin type and how much you were in the sun as an infant or young child.


Ari Guitari
anything is possible...

Are you asking as you suspect you have skin cancer or because you are trying to avoid it in future?

If you have something you suspect may be skin cancer, get it checked! Anything is possible, and early diagnosis and treatment is best.

If you are trying to avoid skin cancer in future, 15 minutes exposure daily is fairly safe, but wear sunblock as an extra precaution. Remember, exposure includes ANY time in the outdoors, walking between buildings, between car or bus and buildings etc not just time sitting in the sun.


Monica.
It is possible to get skin cancer at any age, I'm pretty sure. But I dont think that little sun exposure can hurt you. You need the sun. Don't worry, try wearing sun block.


dcrc93
you can get it at any age,and some dont grow into it untill your older.put on sun screen

Skin cancer can occur at any age, but at such a young age it is VERY unlikely and thats not even a lot of sun exposure. you can go out for more if you like as long as you put on some SPF or cover up clothing & you shouldn't worry about skin cancer.
