Skin cancer is on the rise around the world and it doesn’t care how much money you make. Although scientists are not entirely clear why more people are getting skin cancer than ever before, it’s thought that climate change may play some part. The ozone layer cannot block harmful UV rays from the sun as well as it could even twenty years ago. But if you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer, you’re in good company. There have been many famous people with skin cancer who were successfully treated.
Senator John McCain
The 2008 Republican nominee for President, Arizona Senator John McCain, would certainly approve this message for you to get any strange mole checked out by your doctor as soon as possible. Unlike other types of cancers, skin cancers can usually be successfully removed by surgery. McCain was diagnosed with malignant melanoma on his left arm in 1993. Another melanoma was removed from his face in 2000. This is the most serious type of skin cancer, but McCain has been cancer-free since 2000. Perhaps McCain was emulating one of his role models.
