Protecting every Australian
 
Australia has the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Statistically, 1 in 2 Australians will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. In a country where the sun rarely stops shining, children and adults become vulnerable to harmful rays. Exposure to excessive sunlight from an early age without the necessary protection is extremely dangerous.
Established in 2009, we are committed to detecting skin cancer early and stopping it in its tracks. Most skin cancers are Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC)
and Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC), but the rarer, more deadly Melanomas still account for 1000 deaths annually and are commonly found in the 18-45 age group. Fortunately, if Melanoma is detected early, the successful cure rate is 98% - 100%.

To give people the best possible chance of survival, The World Health Organisation recommends that Australians get checked annually for skin cancer, particularly those with fair complexions or a family history of skin cancer.

With 50% of Australians likely to develop skin cancer at some point in their lives, it’s important to take every step to prevent this disease. Always ensure that you wear adequate clothing, a hat, and SPF 15 (or higher) sunscreen to keep your skin protected. Do your best to avoid the sun between 10am and 3pm, when harmful rays are the strongest.

Skin cancer detection tips
 

Make it a habit to examine your skin every three months to check for:

•  A spot that just doesn’t look like any other spot on your body - a so-called “ugly duckling”

•  A spot that is changing in size, shape, colour, or texture

•  A spot that is tender or recurrently bleeds, gets crusty, or heals then breaks down again

•  A spot that is elevated, firm, and growing – these can signify more aggressive types of melanoma
