Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. In 2011, more than 2000 Australians died from this almost entirely preventable disease.
Every year, in Australia:
- skin cancers account for around 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers
- between 95 and 99% of skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun
- GPs have over 1 million patient consultations per year for skin cancer
- the incidence of skin cancer is one of the highest in the world, two to three times the rates in Canada, the US and the UK
Put simply, the more regularly you check your skin, the greater the chance of detecting a potentially pre-cancerous area of skin before it has the chance to progress to something more dangerous. Sun spots and skin cancers that are identified and treated early have a better outcome than most other types of cancer.
Medeco Skin Cancer Clinic is active in promoting skin cancer awareness and protection.
