      My doctor told me to "stay out of the sun" when he released me from my Head and Neck cancer 8 years ago. I asked how I was supposed to do that when I work outside.

    I think this is a good message for all cancer patients, don't you? We need to take time to recover every now and then.

    How much sun is "too much"? I have been told over and over to stay out of the sun, but it's hard to live your life and stay in the dark

      I have the same sun worries. I have melanoma, so I try to use sunscreen and cover up. I still burn sometimes. We are going on a long car trip and I bought sun protective clothing. You can only do your best. I love the sun, but it doesn't love me!

      They say to stay out of the sun between 10 am - 3 pm that is when the sun is the strongest. If you wear sunscreen and re-apply often you should be all set. I was told 10 mins in 10 mins out. That is impossible. You can also where sun shirts to protect yourself too. I hope that answered your question.

      I am a stage 4 melanoma survivor...red hair, fair skin and blue eyes...how much sun is too much sun...any sunburn is too much sun. Wear sunscreen, hats, long sleeves and UV rated sunglasses. No one dies from sun screen...but a lot of my friends have died of melanoma....
