    Great article, thanks for posting! I have to admit I still have those fears and whenever something is wrong I think it may be cancer but then I talk myself down!

    What’s crazy is that you’re 20 years out but melanoma, unlike some other cancers, I guess you still have to worry even that far out whereas other cancers after 5 years doctors will say “cured”

    Oh I don’t worry about melanoma, but I do worry about other cancers. As you age, you immune system doesn’t stay on its toes, so you never know. But, if you spend time worrying about it, you miss out on life that is happening about you.
