I do, like you pale skinned and freckled and my bosses dad died from unchecked melanoma so he stresses the importance to all of us!

yes, once a year, or if I find something suspicious before that.

 

Had a basal cell removed from my forehead 5 years ago (MOHS surgery) and it is not a pleasant experience.

I never have. My SIL does yearly because she has had questionable spots removed.

I go once a year to get checked.  I’m super pale with some funny shaped moles that need to be monitored. I’ve already had one removed back in high school.  I beat cancer once too so anything I can do to prevent it, I’ll do.

I don’t but my Darling Husband has been told to go in twice a year. He’s gone once in the past 10 years because he’s afraid of being told that he’s got cancer. 

Most men in his family have a gazillion moles of different sizes and shapes on their bodies.
