Its believed that up to 3 million non-melanoma skin cancers occur every year worldwide. And this is not a problem isolated to hot or sunny countries only. Here in the UK, each year 113,000 new skin cancer cases are diagnosed. You can take sun damage at any time, even when its cloudy, and in any country, not just when you’re on holiday. So in short, wearing sunscreen to protect yourself is super important!

Moles are small, coloured spots on the skin. Most people have them and they're usually nothing to worry about unless they change size, shape or colour.

Some moles can be a sign of melanoma, a type of skin cancer.

Signs of melanoma include:

A multicoloured melanoma on pale skin

A mole that's changed colour or has more than 2 colours

A mole with uneven borders

A mole that's bleeding, itching, crusting or raised

See a your healthcare professional if you notice a change in a mole

It's important to get a new or existing mole checked out if it:

changes shape or looks uneven

changes colour, gets darker or has more than 2 colours

starts itching, crusting, flaking or bleeding

gets larger or more raised from the skin

These changes can happen over weeks or months.
