Does sun exposure increase my risk for stage 2 basal cell carcinoma?

Sun exposure is one of the most significant risk factors for stage 2 basal cell carcinoma. Often, people who have had a lifetime of too much sun exposure or who suffered from bad sunburns early in life have an increased risk for developing the condition. People who live in very warm, sunny climates also have an increased risk because they're more likely to be exposed to sunlight more often. Because of this, it's a good idea to avoid too much sun and to wear sunscreen all year round.
