BCC cover up

I've been diagnosed with a BCC on my back.

I'm due to go on holiday before I see the doctor so would like to keep it covered and protected from the sun (but I do love to swim). 

Will waterproof plasters do the trick or should I look for something else? (suggestions please)



  • Hi Janice,

    Welcome to Cancer Chat. It sounds like waterproof plasters could be a good idea, but it's difficult for me to advise fully. If you're able to speak to your doctor before you go on holiday, that would be ideal, as they will be best placed to advise.

    If you'd like to speak to one of our nurses, you are welcome to give them a call on 0808 800 4040 (Monday-Friday, 9-5).

    Wishing you all the best,
