British actress Stephanie Beacham discovered the benefits of falling for a doctor when her lover alerted her to a skin cancer problem on her face.
The Dynasty star thought the pink patch on her nose was nothing but a blemish, but the 62 year old's boyfriend alerted her to the fact it was much more serious.
She tells America's Globe publication, "He said, 'Do you know you have skin cancer on your nose? You must get it looked at immediately'."
A biopsy then revealed she had basal cell carcinoma and doctors were able to surgically remove the lesion.
Beacham admits she's not surprised she had a brush with skin cancer - because she was obsessed with tanning in her youth.
The always bronzed actress explains, "I used to smother myself with olive oil and lay in the sunshine for hours."
