There are two main categories of skin cancer – melanoma and non-melanoma. Melanoma (also known as ‘malignant melanoma’) is less common than non-melanoma cancers, but is the most dangerous. Non-melanoma skin cancers are mainly comprised of ‘Basal Cell Carcinoma’ (BCC) and ‘Squamous Cell Carcinoma’ (SCC). BCC is the most common and the least dangerous.
You don’t have to avoid the sun all year, but taking a few steps when out and about in the summer sun or when on a sunshine holiday will help to protect you from sunburn and the risk of skin cancer.
Sunscreens should not be used as an alternative to clothing and shade, rather they offer additional protection. No sunscreen will provide 100% protection.The British Skin Foundation Skin Cancer Appeal is raising money for vital research into skin cancer. To donate, call the BSF on 0207 391 6341.
Acne is a very common skin condition characterised by comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
