Now that summer is fast approaching it pays to be aware about the importance of avoiding too much sun and sunburn in particular. Sun exposure is linked to the development of skin cancers like BCCs, SCCs and melanoma.
Use a good sunscreen, apply it frequently and think about wearing a hat when outside (especially, if like me, you're thinning a bit on top!).
If in doubt about any unusual, persistant, bleeding or irregular skin lumps then see your GP who may refer you to a dermatologist in the first instance or surgeon for consideration of a biopsy.
