Melanoma - time for a skin check?


With the sun finally making appearance it's time to remember to Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Slide: Slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, slap on a hat, seek shade and slide on some wrap around sunglasses. The original highly successful and enduring 1981 Slip! Slop! Slap! health campaign run by the Cancer Council featured Sid the Seagull and his message remains as important today as ever:

Melanoma is the 4th most common cancer in Australia and the most common for 15-39 year olds and is the biggest cancer killer in this age group. As well as sun protection it is important to have regular skin checks to pick melanoma up early when it is still curable.
