Skin cancer remains a real danger despite aggressive campaigns aimed at increasing awareness and education. Actor and former soccer player Vinnie Jones has told British newspapers that he has had several skin tumors removed from his face and back. Jones mentioned that his disease was diagnosed after he first noticed an irregular blemish near his eye. The former soccer player is attributing his cancer to sun exposure during his years as a soccer player.
