Should I be worried about skin cancer if I had a lot of sunburns?

When I was little, I grew up around the beach. Each week I would spend hours outside, at picnics, running, biking and lots of other things - all outdoors. Because of this, I would get sunburned a lot. Now that i'm older, I tan really well, but am afraid I am going to get skin cancer. Is there a link between the amount of sunburns you've had and skin cancer?
