Skin Cancer

The majority of skin cancers are caused by over-exposure to UV radiation, from either the sun or artificial sources. The UV rays damage the skin cells making them abnormal and changing their growth, which can result in skin cancer. Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, with 2 in 3 Australians expected to be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70. However, when diagnosed early, most skin cancers can be treated successfully.

Early Detection

Early detection is possible and can be achieved by taking a few steps to monitor your skin. This includes performing self-checks regularly to become familiar with your skin and to identify changes.

You want to look out for new spots (moles) and any changes in shape, colour or size of existing moles.

Skin cancers can develop anywhere, even on parts of the body usually covered but not necessarily fully protected. Be sure to check hard to see areas with a mirror or help from a loved one. If you do notice any changes or have concerns about moles or your sun exposure, book an appointment for a skin check. Early detection can save lives.

Skin Cancer Prevention

Prevention is the best cure, and there are several things you can do to help protect your skin from harmful UV rays. The Cancer Council recommends using a combination of protection measures, including:

SLIP, SLOP, SLAP, SEEK, SLIDE
  • SLIP – on sun-protective clothing that covers as much skin as possible
  • SLOP – on sunscreen that is water resistant and at least SPF 30+ and reapply every 2 hours
  • SLAP – on a hat that protects your face, scalp, ears and neck
  • SEEK – shade to limit sun exposure
  • SLIDE – on sunglasses to protect your eyes
Knowing Your UV Levels
UV levels change throughout the day. So, knowing the daily UV rating and when it’s at its strongest means you can avoid being in the sun during those times.
A UV rating of three (3) or higher is considered harmful enough to require sun protection. In South East Queensland that level can easily reach 13+ and be extreme enough to inflict severe sunburn as a result of the UV exposure.Use the SunSmart widget as a guide to know when the UV rating is high in your area.

Using these protection measures doesn’t guarantee that you will not get skin cancer, but it can help to reduce your risk. When combined with regular self-checks and professional skin checks, you can improve your defence against invasive skin cancer.
