I can attest to the skin cancer thing. Just had some removed from my forehead in May. Luckily it wasn't melanoma. I like to be outdoors and I was an avid surfer growing up so I chalk up to my ignorance of my youth. I lather up my daughter as much as I can. I probably over do it.

The sun here is brighter, hotter, and to me, quite a bit more uncomfortable at times. Having the late afternoon sun on your arm when stuck in traffic can be painful, like sticking it under a heat lamp. Never noticed that anywhere else. I've seen more 50 year old people here who look 60 to me than in the other cities where I've lived (in NC, Chicago, and Portland). On the bright side, the atmosphere is much clearer, so lightning looks flash-bulb intense, and there is magical late afternoon sun on the clouds. But as to your concern, it's justified.
