Skin cancer accounts for a large number of newly diagnosed cancers in Australia, so regular skin checks are important. Individuals should become familiar with their skin, so that they can quickly spot anything unusual.
Most of us have moles, but since moles put you at a higher risk of melanoma, you should take special notice of new moles that appear, or any changes to existing ones. All of the skin should be checked, not only those areas exposed to the sun, as melanoma can arise in any part of the body.
