Thanks for the insightful talk, Dr. King. Based on your experience, I am curious what your thoughts are on the intermittent vs. chronic sun exposure leading to an increased risk in superficial melanoma. Have you seen anything to suggest that perhaps there is a level of sun exposure that's "beneficial" in that continuous sun exposure increases melanin production and epidermal thickness that may actually protect against melanoma long-term?
