The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the main cause of skin cancer.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.
The good news is that using sun protection will cut your risk of skin cancer at any age, no matter if you are 6 months or 60 years old. And most skin cancer can be successfully treated if it is found early.
