5 Things To Consider If You’re Concerned About Skin Cancer

Apr 28, 2017 10:45:00 AM Posted by: Mr. Fuan Chan

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.


Staying Safe In The Sun By Using SPF To Reduce The Risk Of Skin Cancer

Apr 21, 2017 10:15:00 AM Posted by: Mr. Fuan Chan

One of the main lines of defence against developing skin cancer is protecting the skin from the harmful rays of the sun by using an SPF (sun protection factor) product every day. Our skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays (UVA and UVB – there is also a UVC but this mostly burns off in the atmosphere and doesn’t pose a problem) all year round, no matter where we are. That means being sun smart and using SPF is as important here in Ireland, where it tends to be overcast, as it is when you go on holiday to sunnier climates.

Sun damage is the leading cause of skin cancer, so it is important to know the facts and ensure your skin is well protected. There is a lot of misinformation out there about skin cancer; who is at risk from the disease and how it develops. Early detection is very important when it comes to treating the illness so being aware of the facts around skin cancer is essential. Here are five of the more common inaccurate beliefs about the condition – and the truth behind them.

When it comes to skin cancers such as melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, early detection is so very important. They are increasingly treatable, which is great, but early diagnosis can minimise the amount and severity of treatment needed. That’s why it is so essential to know what you’re looking for. There are also a number of factors that can increase your chances of developing skin cancer, and being aware of these is also useful. I have outlined some below.

While skin cancer is a problem across the world, it undoubtedly a very big issue here in our corner of Europe. The typically pale skin tones combined with a climate that doesn’t really encourage the use of sun protection but still poses the same UV threat every day, result in very high incidences of melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
