    I just read this and I am glad for Mac that he is now going for regular check ups. I myself have always been in the sun and had a couple of skin checks but I know I need to continue with these checks since I am still out in the sun.

    In the written article, it states “Luckily, neither were cancerous and were removed easily.” This is incorrect; melanoma is indeed cancerous.
