Some antibiotics (ciproflaxin/cipro) for one is a no no with a lot of sun. Ironically, like Sara Anne, I have just had a 2nd path and digging of a 1st melanoma for me and just was cleared as OK, today. That is another cancer not to fool around with and the extra exposure to sun.
DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.
I don’t think that there is anything special about sun and bladder cancer unless he is taking some kind of medication where that would be a problem and, if so, his doctor would have mentioned it.
However, suntanning is not a good idea anyway. In the past two years I have had to have two skin cancers removed. One a malignant melanoma and one a squamous cell carcinoma that had to be removed by a plastic surgeon. Both were scary and not fun.
Diagnosis 2-08 Small papillary TCC; CIS
