Skin cancer is highly treatable and mortality rates are low if caught early. Difficulties arise in where skin cancers or melanomas go undetected for a period of time and become a more advanced condition. In more advanced skin cancer and melanoma cases, the tumour will have extended through the lymph node and impacted other vital organs.
Having skin cancer doesn’t mean you cannot go outside again, it just means that need to be careful in the sun and be aware that you are at risk of a new or a recurrence of skin cancer should you expose your skin to direct sunlight without adequate protection.
Dermatologists recommend UPF 50+ sun protective clothing, broad brim sun hats and a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF rating above 30. Sunscreen is an effective means of sun protection if applied and reapplied correctly but the best course of action is to cover up with protective clothing.
Solbari is a leading sun protective clothing brand based in Melbourne, Australia. We offer a range of UPF 50+ protective products.

The introduction of “lockdowns”, the restriction of movement and non-essential healthcare activities being suspended have had an impact on the diagnosis of cancer cases including skin cancer.
Countries around the World are now evaluating the unintended consequences of Covid-19 restrictions on the diagnosis of cancer. Sadly, cancer related death rates are expected to increase over the coming years due to the delay in diagnosis.
