What are the actual chances of getting skin cancer ? people say it can increase your chances by 75%, but if it's only like a 2% of getting it to start with, it's going to be unlikely. I use sunbeds, obviously i get concerned about skin cancer because i don't want to die anytime soon, but i hate looking pale. So what are the chances ? How many people who use sunbeds actually fall unlucky. Thanks.

I'm naturally on the light side, but I'd like to maintain a light tan complexion. I'm planning on booking occasional tanning sessions until I achieve my desired color and only returning maybe once or twice a month to maintain color. Is once a month tanning likely to make me develop skin cancer? I'm not going to go all 'super dark' 'spent the summer in miami' crazy, I just want a touch of color to me, is the possibility of skin cancer still highly likely?
