So, while I was getting radiation and chemo, my forearms were covered in sores. Having grown up in central Florida during the 70's (when there was no such this as "sun block"), I suspected this might have something to do while future skin cancer.

'turns out I was right. Last week, my oncologist, Dr. G, said the precancerous skin cells were being affected by the chemotherapy. The chemo basically killed off (my term, not his) some of the precancerous cells and this would at least delay the onset of skin cancer.

This is cool 'cause cancer sucks (even skin cancer).
