I just got my first diagnosed basal cell growth on the side of my nose. (It's very small--about 1.5 millimeters diameter.) I'm shocked since I have never been a sun worshipper and have been a bit of a 'health nut' most of my life.
In my research, I have found contradicting opinions on the effectiveness of sunscreen. All dermatologists seem to highly recommend mineral sunscreen. But, I suspect they just are following 'textbook' guidelines.
I'm interested in hearing what this community thinks about the use of sunscreen, and any recommendations you may have.
