The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the major cause of skin cancer.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. At least 2 in 3 Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.
The good news is that skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer. You can reduce your risk of skin cancer at any age by using good sun protection. If found at early stages, over 95% of skin cancers can be successfully treated.
