ABOUT SKIN CANCER

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Skin cancer occurs when cells are damaged by UV rays from the sun.

There are three main types of skin cancer:

            Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)

            Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

            Melanoma

Around two thirds of Australians will be diagnosed with some type of skin cancer by the time they are 70 years old.

The most common treatment for skin cancer is surgical removal, however non-surgical options may be suitable for certain skin cancers and sun spots.

Protection from the sun and early detection of skin cancers are the best options in order to avoid surgery.
