Skin cancer

Recommended Posts

I saw this on another forum, and thought it worth sharing,

https://www.anglersmail.co.uk/news/cancer-risks-anglers-bob-roberts-84673?fbclid=IwAR30kOHjj0zJ8grZs8XvSWnssWcOwHLMxoAl9rOPqa1wuKWRondPeuvm1HM

Although I've always worn a brimmed hat, and used polarised sunglasses, I've rarely used sun block. It was something rarely mentioned back in the day, but seeing this gives food for thought, and should give us all a warning about the dangers.

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

I use Factor 50+  sun block & always wear a peaked cap or hat - there's just no pleasure being burnt.

I have however learned NEVER to apply it to my forehead as it runs into the eyes & stings like hell when sweating!!

Luckily never been a sun lover and never went around shirtless.Only in the last couple of years have I gone coatless when it gets to the higher twenties (i now have a bag where my wallet and phone live when I go to town)

My old head bailiff had a few ops on cancerous tissue around his ears (lost a big bit of one) it suddenly dawned on us as an army kid then in the army then police he always had short back and sides so more exposure.

I have always had 'wayward' hair so hopefully not so much exposure


Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

I hope all went well with the treatments, and it's behind you now.

Take care mate, John.

Totally bald, I wear a leather "cowboy" type hat for fishing. Holds on my head, gives protection all round, ears, neck and so on. Usually in shorts and shirt sleeves I use a factor 10, 12, or 15 in a spray. It gets applied often as I find getting splashed by landing fish or just getting wet fetches it off. Always use a cooing aftersun when I've showered later.

Shooting I wear a flat cap, long cotton trousers, wax waiscoat, and a long sleeved shirt that is sun proof with a double collar that can be turned up high. I use a low factor around my face, which has to contain deet for insects.


If all else fails, follow the intructions.
