What is my skin cancer risk?
A key cause of melanoma is overexposure to the sun, and especially sunburn, which is particularly damaging to the skin. UV damage over time all adds up to increased risk of skin cancer, but there are other risk factors too – check out the seven risk factors of skin cancer.
As we age, skin cancer checks are more important
Any of us who are in our 30s or older probably have fond memories of idyllic summers spent out in the sun all day, with barely a thought for sunscreen or covering up. Unfortunately, back in those pre ‘sun smart’ days, the damage to your skin may already have been done – and you might be seeing the consequences now as you age. That is why a regular mole check is so crucial.
