Skin cancer. What you need to know.

Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, and according to the National Cancer

Registry (NCR), it ranks among the top 5 cancers affecting South African men. It occurs when there is unrepaired damage to skin cells (often by ultraviolet radiation) and cancerous growths form into malignant tumours. Moles or growths on the skin could be indicators of melanoma and should be assessed by a medical professional immediately.

Risk Factors:

● Light skin, hair and eyes

● Family history of skin cancer

● Early exposure to sunburn

● Exposure to sun

● Large number of moles

● Having skin that freckles or burns easily

How to Stay Safe From Melanoma:

● Avoid the sun at peak daytime hours

● Cover up with clothing and hats that block out UV rays
