If I get sunburnt easily will I get skin cancer easily too?

Question

I'm pale skinned, red headed and I burn very easily. Since I'm prone to
sunburn am I therefore more likely to get skin cancer?

Answer

Yes, you are. People who do burn and freckle more easily in the sun are more likely to get skin cancer. It's very important that the fairer you are, the more likely you burn, the more you should take care in the sun. Definitely. So avoid the sun, cover up and slap on the factor 30.
