Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. Around 2,000 Australians die from skin cancer each year which could be prevented with early detection.
Question - Who’s mainly at risk of developing skin cancer? The simple answer is unfortunately skin cancer does not discriminate whether male or female, adult or child. There are certain risk factors that can influence your chances of developing a skin cancer eg. if you work or play outside or have ever been sunburnt. The best cure is prevention so we encourage you to get educated on the best ways to help protect yourself and get checked.
Skin cancers account for about 80% of all new cancers diagnosed each year in Australia. Each year, Australians are 4 times more likely to develop a common skin cancer than any other form of cancer.
It is estimated that approximately 200 melanomas and 34,000 non-melanoma skin cancers per year are caused by occupational exposures in Australia.
