After reading this book, I was concerned about a couple of patches on my husband's face. I urged him to see the GP (and he took the book with him). Turned out he has actinic keratoses on both cheeks. The GP was impressed with the book! Initial topical treatment hasn't had much effect, so he's now been referred to a dermatologist.
Good health decisions
