Skin Cancer Checks
Western Australians enjoy a sunny and warm climate, and lead a lifestyle centered around the outdoors. Unfortunately, this exposes us to harmful UV contact, and leads us to have some of the highest rates of skin cancers in the world. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in Australia, with at least two out of three people being diagnosed with skin cancer before the age of 70.
Some skin cancers are so small they are almost invisible to the untrained eye, and can start and grow without any symptoms. However, skin cancer can be simple to treat when detected early. All Australians should get to know their own skin well and watch for changes. Regular skin checks by a trained professional are essential in ensuring skin cancers are found and treated in the early stages. Yearly appointments with a trained doctor to check on any changes in skin are crucial.
