Whilst the incidence rate of skin cancer is high it is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Skin cancer is primarily caused by cumulative exposure to UV or sunlight.
By following the guidelines below you will reduce the risk of excessive UV light exposure:
Dermatologists recommend UPF50+ sun protective clothing as the first line of defence against skin cancer. Solbari Sun Protection, offers an award-winning range of UPF50+ sun protective clothing, broad-brim sun hats, arm sleeves and umbrellas.
Australians love the great outdoors and our sunny skies make the Australian lifestyle one of the most envied in the world. Notwithstanding, the extensive “Slip Slop Slap” campaign, many Australians are still exposing themselves to the severity and dangers of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun.
It's essential to check your skin regularly. Early detection of skin cancers is very important, especially for melanoma, as the survival rate is much greater when caught early. Research shows that it can sometimes be as little as a matter of months between when a melanoma is first detected to the point where it metastasises and becomes a lot more difficult to treat.
