Sun Awareness Week - Skin Cancer 2017 (May 8th-14th)

Sun awareness week commenced 8th May 2017. We would like to promote awareness about skin cancer prevention and early detection of changes in moles. 

In 2016 the British Association of Dermatologists identified that 8 out of 10 people are failing to adequately apply sunscreen before going out in the sun. 

Key messages are:

  • Be sun aware    - use sun screen before going out into the sun
  • Be mole aware – monitor existing moles for changes

Be sun smart.

Detecting skin cancer.

A cervical screening test (previously known as a smear test) is a method of detecting abnormal cells on the cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina.

Detecting and removing abnormal cervical cells can prevent cervical cancer.
