Since squamous cell anal cancer is a skin cancer (correct?) and I've been told my anal cancer was from using a tanning bed for years, I'm wondering how to cope with activities in the sun. My farmer brother wants me to spend days horseback riding, also to help bail hay (seriously!) by driving a truck for him. I just purchased an SPF 80 sunblock, is that overkill? Anyone?
I've always loved outdoor summer activities, running, walking, gardening, etc., now I find myself trying to hide from the sun! I try to do everything outside before 10 am. :(
