Ive got scars all over me from BCCs and SCCs.
But ive got a couple of surfing mates who have really been through the mill. And probably have more issues to come.
So yeah. It's a scary topic.

And don't go to a GP to check them. Go to a skin specialist/dermatology clinic.

I would normally agree with you but TBH it depends on the GP?
My GP in Sydney was spot on (did you see what I did there?)
I went to a specialist when I came back to Qld 10 years ago.
But my GP is South African and he's excellent, too.
He picked a fast growing SCC on my arm a few years back just at a casual glance.
It had appeared within about 6 months, after my previous specialist check.

BCC prob won't kill you just eat you away slowly - when they call you back and say come in tomorrow then the shit gets real.

What results take a couple of months?
I get a BCC cut out, it goes to pathology, they analyse it, check it hasn't exceeded what has been cut out and send the results back in 3 or 4 days.

My son had one cut out in Canada. They analysed it while he was still in the theatre.

Stay sun smart. I had a melanoma taken out last year and they don't muck around even for a small one. 27 stitches and it was the size of a small pimple.

Thanks guys, you prompted me to get off my arse and go to a clinic, something I'd been meaning to do for, oh, 10 years or so.

One cancer between my shoulder blades
One on cancer on my forehead
One between my ear and cheekbone, not cancerous.

I was told the cancerous ones were unlikely to spread, just grow.

All left pretty deep craters the size of a 10 cent piece and an eighth of an inch deep

Good idea GSTQ, the doctor was cheaper though(free in fact), I should have asked him if he could undertake the board repairs. Why not eh? they would both have good hand/eye coordination and other complementary skills.

My good looks have been badly marred now GSTQ.

Today I was wearing a surf cap to shade me from the sun, my wife hates them and says I look stupid in them, so when she saw a cloth pommy workers cap for sale at a stall in Freo today, insisted that I would look much better in that, so bought it for me.

Stylin' now! I stood on a corner and shouted "Workers of the world unite, throw off those chains that the running dog capitalists have bound you with!" etc.
