As Summer is just around the corner, it is now more important than ever that we focus on protecting ourselves. Skin cancer is one of the leading causes of death in Australia, and one way we can reduce our chances of skin cancer, is by being SunSmart. Being SunSmart includes making sure we are covered when out in the sun, routinely applying sunscreen and seeking shade on hot, sunny days.
Another way to be SunSmart is by routinely visiting your GP to get skin checks. Studies have shown that early intervention leads to a higher chance of recovery.
Come visit us at Nedlands Medical Centre to have your skin checked by Dr Kate Rieben who specializes in skin cancer management.
