Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to stay out of the sun?

In Gorlin Syndrome patients are at a greater risk of developing BCCs, it is therefore recommended that people take care in the sun. It is advisable to use a sun block or high factor sun screen. It is also recommended that hats, long sleeves and sunglasses are worn to protect from the sun's harmful rays.
