MELANOMA SKIN CANCER
NON-MELANOMA SKIN CANCER
Non-melanoma skin cancers can occur on any part of the body. Keep an eye out for:
COMMON RISK FACTORS
Skin Colour or Type
Those who burn easily in the sun have an increased risk of sun damage and skin cancer.
If you have suffered severe sunburn in the past, especially with blisters and in childhood there is a higher risk of skin cancer.
AVOID! Short, high intensity exposure to UV radiation which is provided by sunbeds is very dangerous and dramatically increases the risk of skin cancer.
Those with many (more than 50) moles or with unusual moles which are large, irregular shaped or with many colours in them are at increased risk of skin cancer.
Outdoor Work Or Lifestyle
People who have a lot of overall exposure to the sun (even without burning) are at increased risk of non-melanoma skin cancer, so be sure to wear sun cream!
