Sun damage can affect the skin in a variety of ways over years of exposure. These effects can be immediate, like sunburn, or they can appear later, like skin cancer and early ageing.
Over the last thirty years the incidence rates of the most dangerous skin cancer, malignant melanoma, has increased more rapidly than any of the top ten cancers. It can easily be missed. To try and prevent skin cancers avoiding exposure to the sun, covering up exposed skin and the use of sunscreen are the most effective things you can do. Sunscreens also are integral in delaying photo ageing such as wrinkles and crows feet.
It is important that changing moles and new lesions on the skin are properly assessed. Given skin cancers can be hard to diagnose involvement of a dermatologist at an early stage can make all the difference.
If you are worried about moles or lumps on your skin or you wish to discuss ways to stop your skin aging then come along to our skin awareness patient information evenintg at Spire Cheshire Hospital on Wednesday 5th September at 7.15pm. Short presentations will be given by top UK dermatologist Dr Richard Warren and Reba Cosmetic Clinic.
