If skin cancer is a concern for you and/or your family, there are a number of things you should be aware of. For example, there are a number of lifestyle factors – both current and historic - that can increase your risk of developing skin cancer, which is now one of the most common forms of cancer in Ireland. There are also ‘red flags’ that might indicate you are at a higher risk of the disease. Here, I have outlined some key points to consider so you can keep yourself and your loved ones healthy.

According to the Irish Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland, with just over 10,000 cases diagnosed here in 2013.
