With two in three Australians diagnosed with skin cancer by age 70, the action week is an important reminder of the risks of exposure to UV radiation, the need for sun protection and early skin cancer detection for all Australians.
More than 2,000 people in Australia die from skin cancer each year, and Cancer Council estimates that Australia spends more than $1 billion per year treating skin cancer, with costs increasing substantially over the past few years.
It is vital that you have skin checked regularly. When found early, most melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers are curable.
This year the National Skin Cancer Action Week is November 18-24, 2018. OZ Skin Cancer Clinics provides bulk-billed skin check. Early detection is our goal! Be sure to schedule a skin health check every year with your skin cancer doctor. Books yours today by calling (03) 5608 0000 or by completing the online request form.
